Alex Honnold Free Solo Ticket Giveaway

26th Nov 2018

Alex Honnold Free Solo Film-2

Alex Honnold is known world wide for his amazing climbing feats.  He has climbed around the planet and excelled on everything from long epics in Patagonia (do watch ‘Line Across the Sky’ if you haven’t seen it) to adventure climbs in Antarctica - his climbing CV is incredible.  

However,  it is solo climbing that has become his trademark discipline.  No one call fail to marvel at his unique ability to calmly work out the hardest climbing sequences at death defying heights and without any safety net- just watching Alex puts every viewer on the edge of their seat.

But, even for Alex,  the challenge of solo climbing the giant 3,200 foot face of El Capitan must have been a terrifying prospect.  Not one single human being had done this before and all of Alex’s friends and loved ones  tried to discourage him.  But Alex is Alex and he achieved his target in June 2017.      

Free Solo tells the story of this staggering climb and directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin expertly weave the story of the climb with an analysis of Alex’s life, relationships, determination and his ability to keep going when others would see that their challenge is too close to being a step too far.  They also explore the moral dilemma of filming someone undertaking a challenge where one slip would be them filming Alex falling to certain death. 

December 11th 2018 is International Mountain Day and so it is perfect timing for the critically acclaimed Free Solo film to be released in UK cinemas.  Even better, the screening will be followed by a live satellite Q&A session with Alex and the filmmakers.  This is not to be missed and the Peak Mountaineering team will be heading to Sheffield to watch the action……and we cordially welcome you to join us.

The film organisers have generously offered us 4 tickets for the Sheffield Vue screening to give away to some very lucky Peak Mountaineers (we will offer these as 2 pairs).  If you are heading to Sheffield for the afternoon we’ll even through in climbing wall visit passes for you Awesome Walls Sheffield for you too.
