There’s a new feature-length climbing documentary hitting cinemas this week, and it looks like a must-watch. From the team behind the inspiring Dawn Wall and the entertaining Valley Uprising comes The Alpinist, a look at the life of a remarkable climber.
The film focuses on Marc-André Leclerc, a Canadian multi-discipline climber who made a name for himself while free-soloing some of the world’s toughest big alpine climbs. With jaw-dropping shots of his exploits on sheer icy faces, and an exploration into the philosophy that motivated his solo approach to climbing, this is unmissable if you love outdoor adventure.
