List of Alex Honnold Documentaries and Movies

Free Solo (2018) - Before the release of the documentary film Free Solo, Honnold was already a star in the climbing community. Generally speaking, he was also a well-known figure in the outdoors community. But he achieved near mainstream popularity with the release of Free Solo. Directed by Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, the film offered an in-depth profile of Honnold as he attempted to be the first man to free solo climb El Capitan at the Yosemite National Park. 
The documentary was a success, grossing over $28 million at the box office. It also earned mostly positive reviews from critics. It has received numerous accolades including Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars, Best Documentary at the British Academy Film Awards, and People's Choice Award in the Documentaries category at the Toronto International Film Festival. 

This is the first full-length documentary film on Honnold so it's definitely the go-to film as an introduction to Honnold's work and to understand why he is very much revered in climbing circles. Free soloing El Capitan is by far Honnold's most dangerous accomplishment. The movie documents Honnold's preparations for the climb and culminates with Honnold making it to the top of the rocky mountain.

Whether you are a rock climber or not, this documentary is a must-watch. You don't have to be an enthusiast of the outdoors to appreciate Honnold and his process of approaching his craft.
