Absorbing, had me on the edge of my seat.

A portrait of a climber, while watching felt an appreciation for him exactly as he was - with his eccentricities and idiosyncrasies. How he didn't fit into any mold.

And wondered, could I bring that same appreciation to myself - and others.

--

Many interesting things besides, how he learnt to climb (on his own - bottom-up learning), and his motivation for the experience and the journey.

Recommend.

Finally got a chance to watch this, been on watch list since posted.

Gripped, absorbed, amazed, amused, many words..

Essence, pure, undiluted, relaxed, peaceful, honestly expressing yourself

watching his climbing is sublime

Thoroughly recommend watching this.. it has some stunning footage if that helps

Thank you for posting this

"As a young climber it is undeniable that I have been manipulated by the media and popular culture and that some of my own climbs have been subconsciously shaped through what the world perceives to be important in terms of sport. Through time spent in the mountains, away from the crowds, away from the stopwatch and the grades and all the lists of records I've been slowly able to pick apart what is important to me and discard things that are not."

Many things talked about on here.
Education / Passion / Bottom up learning / Preparation / ...
Too bad no 4K release of this. Stunning documentary. Thanks for the recommendation Hineini.

Will watch Free Solo and Pickup Game this month. Both look interesting too.
