Famed Free Solo climber Alex Honnold and “rock” star Hazel Findlay -- battling loose rock, bitter cold and sudden storms -- climb one of the tallest unclimbed sea cliffs in the world in Greenland to research a key climate-change bellwether for our entire planet. Joining Alex and Hazel are climber/cinematographer Mikey Schaefer, glaciologist Dr. Heïdi Sevestre, Greenlandic guide Adam Kjeldsen and renowned adventurer Aldo Kane. Honnold will fulfill a lifelong dream of climbing the most remote and toughest walls of Greenland, while also showcasing how climate change is affecting the region. Greenland is considered to be “the world’s last great climbing frontier” and the highlight of the journey will be Peak 3342, one of Greenland’s highest peaks that has yet to be climbed.
