Anyone else watch this last night at one of the cinema screenings?

Abso-flippin-lutely epic. I was reasonably informed on the feat itself before the film, but wow. What a documentary. That was just complete physical and mental perfection pulling that off!

You didn't have to pay for the Star Wars spin-off?

also got to see it at the weekend. awesome documentary and what an amazing, bonkers achievement - the reaction of the ground based guy filming it was superb and probably how I would have reacted.

I wonder if Honnold will continue to solo big walls - it's not a sport that has many old climbers Rolling Eyes

I think he will continue to solo stuff, but won't have the same obsessive 'need' as he did with El Cap. There's nowhere else on earth that has the same history and pull that i think meant a lot to him. He doesn't strike me as the kind of guy that is just looking for the next level in difficulty, the next (bigger) adrenaline rush etc. He'll just take whatever he wants to do in his stride. Not that i know anything! haha but that's my opinion. A very likeable guy!
