Before there was Free Solo, there was 1972's 'Solo'

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Stop me if you've seen this one but I didn't know that almost 50 years before Free Solo won an Oscar, another movie profiling a solo rock climber on El Capitan was under consideration by the Academy.

Check out this beautiful film about the complex sport of roped solo rock climbing that captures the magic of being alone in the mountains. ... e-was-solo

Thanks and Enjoy!
