Risk, trust, fear, death, beauty, meaning, creativity and what it means to live an adventurous life. These are the subjects I explore this week with @jimmy_chin & @chaivasarhelyi, the dynamic filmmaking duo behind ‘Free Solo’ — a riveting, sweaty-palm-inducing thrill ride portrait of @alexhonnold as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream to scale the world’s most famous rock, the 3,200 face of El Capitan in Yosemite, WITHOUT A ROPE. It’s an accomplishment the NY Times called “one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind ever — I concur. . . . . . . . .
Today I go behind the veil to discover there is so much more to this amazing story than meets the eye. It was an honor to sit down with Jimmy & Chai - I hope you enjoy the exchange as much as I enjoyed having it. Clickable link in bio. The YouTube version (which features some amazing clips from the movie) can be viewed at youtube.com/richroll
