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.

When I want an adrenaline rush, I stand on a swivel chair and change a lightbulb.

The crew : this is highly dangerous. We need so many precautions, this is so stressful, he could fall and die, we don't want to film him dying, we're so nervous for him, he is literally risking his life
Alex : yea lol

My wife said look at the size of his “hands and fingers”. Stay away from my wife!

Honestly every time I watch stuff like this about the climb, and after seeing the movie - the amount of preparation Alex put into the climb and how perfectly he executed it honestly blows my mind. If you want an example of a human being mastering something, this is easily one of the best examples. What a human being.

Alex: The risk of free soloing is always to fall off and fall to your death... I mean it's pretty straight forward.

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

First thing he does when reaches the top is fix his hair and scratch his head, a legend is born.

At 24 seconds I made it to my room to watch the show and take a nap. I look up to see a 3.5ft mountain of clothes on my bed. I turned back as the task was too daunting.

Astonishing. Please no unqualified copycats, falling that far would not be cool.
