Fliming the First Free Solo Climb of El Capitan

When Alex Honnold free solo climbed El Cpaitan — with no ropes or safety equipment — he raised the bar for climbing. Filming the monumental event wasn't nearly as challenging, but had its own set of problems, like finding experienced climbers that could also operate a camera, and overcoming the logistics of shooting a climb on a nearly-vertical, 3,000-foot rock face. Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, the directors of Free Solo go into detail about how they shot one of the biggest feats in athletic history for the world to see.
