Author: VukazahnDespite the topic of this film I was so distracted by Alex Honnold climbing up a vertical face
Author: FenrikasaMy favorite quote from the film: imagine you’re an athlete going to the olympics. If you don’t get gold, you die. That’s the intensity of what Alex did here.

Author: SalkisHe Dead!
Author: VodalBruh overhangs look insanely difficult to conquer
Author: TaugulI watched another short doco today called " One Breath Around the World" about a guy called Guillaume Nerý who free dives our incredible oceans. Alex and Guillaume are in the same category of incredible brave explorers who have to conquer incredible physical and mental feats in order to do what they do! They are two of the bravest men I "know"!!
Author: VogamiThe way the film is made makes it appear that the filmmaking was harder than the actual climb
Author: MikakazahnThe only thing I can hold that firmly is my beer
Author: KegoreIf this was anything like breath of the wild, those climbers would be screwed when it started raining!
Author: FaeshoI feel a bit under par!

Author: MizilkreeThe only rock climbing I'm doing is on a VR Headset. But even that gives me shaky knees and sweaty palms.
Author: NazshuraAlex clearly has a few screws loose and the crew eluded to it a few times.
Author: FelmaranI'm jealous about how awesome the connection Alex and his friends have with each other.
Author: NelmaranI feel dizzy watching him haha
Author: ShabeiBreath of the Wild? More like Breath of the Climb
Author: TanrisHealth and safty: " ok sir, but you're requiring to wear a helmet & a highviz jacket at all times incase you fall."
Author: KizragoreJust turn off fall damage when he climbs......
Author: YolkreeEntire free solo film crew: :O (pikachu face)
Author: MeztijinI love how the filmmakers put the ethics of the situation at the forefront in the making of this documentary. I particularly liked that they never asked him when he would climb El Capitan, but simply observed his journey in accomplishing such a gargantuan goal.
Author: AkinomThe greatest athlete in the world.. Hands down. Just incredible...
Author: VizilCamera crew deserves some serious applause, please.
Author: Nidal9 out of 10 doctors would recommend!
Author: TalabarHow can he climb with these 1000 kilos balls
Author: ShamuroAfter watching the doc, it stuck with me for a while, be in my thoughts and dreams.
Author: MularWatching this made my stomach churn and my legs weak, like they were going to collapse under me at any moment, you see I'm really afraid of heights!! Even seeing them on a screen makes me physically react. Weirdly though I've I started watching this I simply couldn't stop, I had to watch it all the way through. What a mind blowing physical and mental feat, Alex conquered a mountain literally and metaphorically and it blew me away.
Author: TojamWtf 😱
Author: TuzragoreAt 3:17 I actually became a water bender. Shooting water out of my palms.
Author: VojoraPlot twist: they forgot to start filming
Author: ZoloshuraThe man is a legend. He climbed his own balls.

Author: NaraI already watched his documentary! It's sooooooooo cool ❤
Author: FenrikazahnAlex: Meh, do it every day
Author: VijinAlex: Yeah right ima go climb a mountain with no climbing gear!
Author: MoleI needed a chalk bag just to watch this
Author: GoshakarMy heart was pounding during all the clip... crazy stuff...
Author: YomiCan't believe he's still able to pull himself up with his balls of steel ...
Author: MukusElizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi " thanks to all women and people of color "
Author: KigamWhat's amazing to me is that it only took him under 4 HOURS!!!
Author: GardazahnThey just won an Oscar for this documentary
Author: NagisSaw the documentary. One of the most nerve wrecking thing I've watched in a while. And I've watched all the saw movies
Author: GakoraHave dry feet and hands? Watch this video 100% effective.
Author: ZutilarI just don’t understand how he could lift and carry those big steel balls up that mountain.
Author: MoranNow do it again but this time sitting in a cauldron and using only a sledgehammer
Author: KigadalAlex most definitely has balls of steel.
Author: JuleThe physical aspect of free climbing is amazing but I can understand how, the mental aspect is something I cannot fathom. I would be afraid of my fear.
Author: MeztillPlot twist. That's not a rock. He's actually climbing his own nut sack.
Author: VoodoozilkreeIt's mad to think that he knows there's a reasonable chance he'll fall to his death one day (hopefully not of course) but seems totally comfortable and accepting of that notion. He also seems very spiritually free. What a fantastic man.
Author: NizahnI see this man in National Gheograpic chanel
Author: Mazulli wish they released raw footage of the climbing. the documentary didn't have enough of that for me.
