One SHOW only, 6:15PM at the Nugget Theatre
Follow Alex Honnold as he becomes the first person to ever free solo climb Yosemite’s 3,000 foot high El Capitan wall. With no ropes or safety gear, he completed arguably the greatest feat in rock climb history. Premiered at the 45th Telluride Film Festival.
“I spent most of this film with my jaw on the floor.” – Guardian
“Scary and exhilarating stuff.” – RogerEbert.com
“According to the Times, ’one of the great athletic feats of any kind, ever.’ But to Honnold, who is thirty-three, it was something else: a fascinating puzzle, years in the making, in which to both lose himself and be found.” – The New Yorker
