This animation, the first of a five-part series, showcases Alex Honnold on topics of life, death, and free soloing the elusive El Capitan.
Future episodes will feature characters who are active in changing how we use climbing to approach internal and external barriers and build community. All of this is part of The North Face’s Walls Are Meant For Climbing campaign: an effort to make climbing more accessible with a $1 million donation for the construction of public climbing walls.
