WHOA

Famed free climber Alex Honnold, 33, is the only person to ascend California's El Capitan alone without ropes

Fascinating:

The movie's production team spent much of the time holding their breath against the nightmarish prospect of a fall. But Honnold himself seemed so calm that researchers wondered if there was something different about his brain. With this in mind, Honnold underwent an MRI in 2016 as he got ready for the ascent. That test, which is documented in the movie, shows that a part of the brain that was once usually associated with fear - the amygdala - did not activate when he was shown violent or frightening images.
