Alex Honnold has become known as the boldest soloist of his generation. In this dangerous game, how does he balance pure ambition with self-preservation? From highball boulder first ascents to 8a free solos, from far-flung trad climbing adventures, to speed records on The Nose, Honnold wrestles with this question in preparation for his biggest adventure yet - the Yosemite Triple. In under 19 hours he climbs Mt. Watkins, El Cap, and Half Dome, 95% of it free solo.
Josh Lowell has been climbing and making movies about climbing almost as long as you've been watching them. Over the last 20 years Josh has climbed in exotic places all over the world but will always call his local crags of the East Coast, like the Shawangunks, home.
An expert climbing director, he has made several films about mountaineering. With Big UP Productions he has made numerous films since 1997, including “King Lines”, which competed at the 56th Trento Film Festival. In 2006, together with Peter Mortimer, he established the REEL ROCK Film Tour, with which he brings previews of the best climbing and adventure films to the attention of the public.
Peter Mortimer lives in Colorado where he founded an adventure film production house, Sender Films. He has produced and directed a range of documentaries on rock climbing, winning more than fifty awards at international film festivals. He made a major documentary on Chris Sharma, which won a Sports Emmy award for Outstanding Camerawork. Mortimer graduated in Geology from Colorado College and took a Masters at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. In 2013 he took part in the Trento Film Festival with the award winning Honnold 3.0 and La Dura Dura.
