Deep in the edit on this big new film for #REELROCK14! For decades, the titans of big wall climbing have competed for the coveted speed record on The Nose of El Capitan. @hansflorine, @peter_b_croft, @alexhuber91, @stonerideryuji, @deanpotter, and @alexhonnold have all played this dangerous game, shaving precious minutes from the record, often by taking bigger risks. In 2017, the dirtbag darkhorses @bradgobright and @chimney_jim dethroned Honnold and Florine, setting a new mark of 2 hours and 19 minutes. Standing on the summit, Gobright immeditately got a text from Honnold: “Congrats! I’m calling Tommy…” Our new film follows Honnold and @tommycaldwell, the kings of El Cap, on their thrilling mission to reclaim the title, and maybe even set a new benchmark that could stand the test of time. As Honnold pushes for perfection, Caldwell, the family man, wrestles with the risk amid a series of accidents that lay bare the consequences of any mistake. 📷 by @austin_siadak @thenorthface @yeti @blackdiamond @headrushtech @lasportivana #climbing #rockclimbing #bigwall #yosemite #elcapitan #thenose #speedclimbing #sub2
