Climbing El Capitan without ropes. But with a 360 view.

Watching this on a cinema screen was mind-blowing, nerve-wrecking, exhausting, and so on. Watching Alex Honnold free soloing El Capitan in 360 creates a new dimension to this story. Vertigo galore. Excellent video production by National Geography following the world’s most famous solo climber (yes, that means no ropes) on his way to the top of El Cap. Doing the virtually impossible.

Spoiler alert: he makes it alive and well. By using 360 technology NG let’s you somehow experience it in a very immersive manner. For the obvious reasons the production won a Webby Award. Check the video below. But don’t look down too much.
