You know what's crazy? Everybody watching this knows that he makes it. He's fine. It's a success. The worry is over. Yet it's still impossible to watch and not be terrified.

Watched it last night..I don't know anything about climbing, but I know this is one of the most beautiful, intense, engrossing and terrifying documentaries ever made.

Two of my kids climb and know Alex. These death wish comments are stupid. He is living his life and doing what he loves. Cant say that about most people. He does not have a death wish. Great job Alex keep climbing and have fun. Be safe and keep doing what you love. Very cool. Ignorant people will make ignorant comments

Can't wait for this. This is indeed probably the greatest athletic achievement in history. If you tried to win Wimbledon starting today you would have a better chance than successfully completing this climb. It is astonishing and beautiful.

this is potentially the limit of human existence. this is the strongest, bravest, most daring thing i think a human could ever accomplish, and that limit is both comforting and terrifying.

I saw this last night. Thought it was fantastic. It was super interesting to see a portrait of Alex Honnold and his psyche, and the climbing scenes were so frightening and severe they were emotional and difficult to watch even knowing he made it. Wow. Congratulations to Alex and everyone involved with the film. And Alex, please don't try to top this. You've done it. You're the best. This really IS good enough.

I was a Ranger, I climbed Nanga Parbat. I have been in a firefight that lasted almost three days. What Alex did is absolutely unparalleled. You couldn’t pay me a billion dollars and give me 10 years prep to even try.
