“It’s pretty cool and I’m pretty honored that they decided to rise to the occasion and they wanted to make something nice for me. It’s pretty snug.”
While the best free solo climber in the world looks like an uncomfortable ring bearer at his cousin’s wedding in a tuxedo, his black tie attire is one of a kind. Honnold’s longtime sponsor North Face sowed together this one off tux for his trip to the Oscars where he won Best Feature Documentary and it could potentially inspire more formalwear from technical outerwear giant:

What a way to finally end the @freesolofilm tour! We won an Oscar!! Technically, @sannimccandless and I didn’t win anything since we were only the subjects of the film. But we kept the awesome envelope anyway 🙂 The actual Oscars go to directors @chaivasarhelyi and @jimmychin and producers @peconic21 and Shannon Dill. They each did an incredible job in helping to craft Free Solo into the Best Documentary of the year! Of course there’s an enormous team of talented people who worked on the film (many of whom I got to hug last night and celebrate with). I guess I just want to say thank you to everyone who worked on the film. And thank you to everyone who’s watched and enjoyed the film. It’s been a wild ride. Thanks.
