    I'm really looking forward to watching. Hopefully they have a streaming release as well since currently I'm not real interested in sitting in a theater.

    Totally worth the $6 or so to stream it. You're really hanging it out there if Alex Honnold thinks you're pushing the envelope.

    Holy shit. This guy is nuts.

    Lots of scenes hard to watch due to pucker factor.

    And how does he get down? They never show that part.

    He had a rope in the backpack for rappelling in most of those climbs. Probably some down climbing too.

    100%, really enjoyable film. I far preferred it to Free Solo.

    Very excited to watch this, and glad it's on prime.

    I heard that he had a blog and that his writing was very good. Did any of you read it?

    Holy cow. That was some of the most spectacular imagery, story I've seen in a while.

    This film was spectacular. Absolutely chill inducing and jaw dropping, and an amazing story. Amazing views and cinematography throughout. Top 3 (newer) climbing films for me right now.

    Yup. When he was a kid starting out he'd post really good trip reports and we'd all be blown away when we realized he was 14 , 15 years old

    I was just reading through the 2019 AAJ - Brette Harrington is all over its pages with significant climbs. Also, in case anyone else is curious, no relation to climber Emily Harrington.

    That was possibly the best climbing movie I've seen. If really captured the drive for and reward from soloing and alpine climbing in general. I'm glad I did that when I was younger and that I made it through alive.

    To paraphrase his mother's eulogy: "People have big plans and dreams but they hold back. What would you do if you weren't held back?" The brightest lights burn out all too soon, sometimes.

    This is probably the first movie in a long time that really prompts some of my own self reflection. Just amazing.
