Marc-André Leclerc may not have craved the spotlight, but his feats in alpine free soloing certainly warranted attention. The Alpinist, from Red Bull Media House and Sender Films, gives viewers the chance to see Leclerc in action, scaling Stanley Headwall, a 500-foot feature in Canada’s Kootenay National Park, and Patagonia’s Torre Egger. The captivating and emotional film was released in select theaters around the country this fall and is now streaming on Netflix. Watch the trailer here, then check out the full film.
