What if He Falls? The Terrifying Reality Behind Filming “Free Solo” | Op-Docs 5
In 2017, when Alex Honnold made his stunning free-solo ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan, he was taking an unimaginable risk: nearly three thousand feet of climbing without any ropes or safety equipment. But was the climb made even riskier by the filmmakers who accompanied him?

In “What if He Falls?” filmmakers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin take us inside the process of documenting Honnold’s quest for climbing glory — and the ethical calculus of filming a friend who could, with the slip of a finger, plummet to his death.

----------
Whether it's reporting on conflicts abroad and political divisions at home, or covering the latest style trends and scientific developments, New York Times video journalists provide a revealing and unforgettable view of the world. It's all the news that's fit to watch.

Plot twist. That's not a rock. He's actually climbing his own nut sack.

My favorite quote from the film: imagine you’re an athlete going to the olympics. If you don’t get gold, you die. That’s the intensity of what Alex did here.

June 3rd 2017 was the day I got clean. It's also my birthday. It's really surreal knowing that on that day we both undertook our most terrifying and difficult journey of our lives. So Thankful we both made it to the top. Cheers Alex

The fact that his friends had to go far away from him, because they knew he could die is just the most terrfying part of the video.

I'm surprised he managed that climb with those massive balls of his weighing him down

If he "free solo's" repeatedly throughout his life, he will eventually slip

He probably could have done it in a faster time if his balls weren't weighing him down.

Tragic to say, but it's only a matter of time till he crashes and buns. It happened to Bachar and most of the other great free soloists.

Darwin Award goes to.... This is literally Russian roulette... He’s just gambling with his life... He’s basically just waiting to make a mistake and fall because if he keeps doing free climbs he will eventually fall and make a mistake...
