Great movie. I got more out of it from a psychological perspective. It really gets inside the guy's head and it's not pretty.

I've watched part of it, mainly for the whole rock climbing. I should find time to sit down and just watch it all.

yeah, clearly he is not wired like a normal person--and the movie rightly focuses on that aspect of it to a large degree. I find that part fascinating as well. But I actually think it overshadows a bit what a ridiculous athletic achievement it is as well. Hard to separate the two given the nature of climbing, but it's an unreal feat.

Several months ago Hulu, started it because a staffer pick. Had little idea what it was going to be about. Very much enjoyed it. Dude is an interesting guy to say the least.
