Too much "personal" story Vs the climbing
5 May 2019
Of course I was expecting some of this, considering the hype and the so much waiting and marketing. The climbing enterprise remains of course, but focusing on the movie, and even considering the peculiarities of the free solo approach that brings potential (or even likely) death into the picture (unlike say sport climbing), still too much of personal stuff compared to the climbing itself that was the part I was looking for. It does come eventually, after 30-40 mins, without which or with a different approach would have got more starts from me. As a climber myself I'm probably biased as this is clearly something for the general public that serves "the show", rather than a climbing insight documentary. Alex remains up there, countless starts for the endeavor, but just 3 for the movie.
