The First (Almost) Free Solo of El Cap


On Sunday, National Geographic Channel will premiere The Man Who Can Fly, a special featuring climber and BASE jumper Dean Potter. The program follows Potter as he attempts to climb and BASE jump from Canada's Mt. Bute. But the hype around the special's premiere has barely touched on an even more important ascent Potter made during filming: the first free solo of El Cap.

Well, kind of.
