Stream ‘The Alpinist’ For Free

The great film about the late climber Marc-André Leclerc has been available on Netflix for some time, but those without a subscription can now watch The Alpinist for free here. (Sorry, we can’t embed.)

Considered one of the few truly excellent climbing feature films, along with Free Solo and Into the Void, it tells the story of a 25-year-old Canadian kid who made some of the most daring solo climbs in history before perishing in an avalanche in Alaska.

Links come and go, so if you haven’t seen The Alpinist already, watch it here as soon as possible.
