FRI NIGHT VID: A Line Across the Sky - The Fitzroy Traverse

This week's Friday Night Video is the award-winning 'A Line Across the Sky' from Reel Rock. The film covers Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold's first ascent of the 5km Fitzroy Traverse in Patagonia, Argentina. Whilst Caldwell had previous Patagonia experience, Honnold had never climbed in the region, and their ascent followed a season a prolonged bad weather, even by Patagonian standards...

One of the best climbing films I've ever seen.

Second ascent, Ged? I think I have some ‘Gore-Tex tennis shoes’ somewhere...

Great stuff, reminds me why i don't alpine climb but really inspiring film and what a line!

Agree 100%, they did a great job of editing the limited footage from Honnold and Caldwell with the background interviews etc. Honnold and Caldwell’s enthusiasm is infectious!

Wow - just wow...

Beautiful film, merging ascent footage with lovely landscape film.  What sings out loudly is the dynamic of these two climbers; super-skilled and just rolling with the adventure.
