Session Times



The Alpinist is an awe-inspiring documentary of visionary climber Marc-André Leclerc, a free-spirited 23-year-old known for making some of the boldest solo ascents in history. With no cameras, no rope and no margin for error, Marc-André’s approach is the essence of solo adventure. Preferring to climb alone, and notoriously publicity shy, his quiet accomplishments astonished and inspired veteran documentarian Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall). The Alpinist follows the elusive Marc-André as his climbs become bigger and more daring, to the astonishment of even the most elite climbers.
