Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss the finer points of  capturing Alex Honnold’s historic free solo climb  of Yosemite’s El Capitan in June 2017.  A major challenge of filming was to get the best possible footage while not affecting Alex (there are only 3 people in the world qualified to that).  Heads up….Free Solo is playing in IMAX theaters for one week only right now.
