EXCLUSIVE Free Solo Viewing

March 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EAT

MCU is hosting a screening of the Oscar winning documentary “Free Solo” by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin at the MCU Quarry for MCU members. The film profiles rock climber Alex Honnold on his quest to perform a free solo climb of El Capitan in June 2017. Watch the trailer here.

Bring a blanket, chair, or yoga mats to sit on. And don’t forget snacks or you can order pizza from Cafe Roma to enjoy while watching the movie. Oh! and don’t forget bug spray…

The screening will start at 7:00 and follows an MCU climbing event that will start at 4:00pm.

 

“Alex Honnold’s Free Solo climb should be celebrated as one of the great athletic feats of any kind, ever.”
