This week's Friday Nighter is from  Patagonia and features Tommy Caldwell (is he about to finish the Dawn Wall Project - we think so!) and Alex Honnold climbing one of the world's best alpine ridges....

Makes the Dawn Wall climb look like a walk in the park.

Ok, it looks ace, but why do we have to wait almost a year before we can watch the whole thing?
