solo

Just got done watching the Banff Film Festival for 2010, and I’m now more inspired than ever. However, I can tell you that I will never do what was portrayed in my favorite film of the festival. Below is a trailer for that film, which is part of the first ascent series (apparently being broadcast outside of the United States and only available on disc later this summer) by Sender films. It follows the young climber from Sacramento Alex Honnold as he solo climbs some gigantic routes. If you’re not in the know, soloing in the world of climbing means that the kid has no protection including, no rope… ya, I told you I’d never do something like this. Just watching the film made me dizzy. Check it out.
