Marc-André Leclerc is The Alpinist

by

The trailer for The Alpinist, the documentary that traces the life of Canadian mountaineer Marc-André Leclerc.

Marc-André Leclerc was universally recognised as one of the most talented climbers of his generation. His ascents from the Canadian Rockies to Patagonia, often solo, almost always difficult and visionary, were abruptly interrupted by his premature death in Alaska together with Ryan Johnson in March 2018.

Now The Alpinist is about to be released, a feature film that seeks to shed light on the young Canadian and his bold climbs. The documentary is directed by veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer (director of The Dawn Wall), while the footage was captured by cameramen and hardcore climbers including Jon Griffith, Austin Siadak and Brett Lowell. The film will be screened across the USA in September, at a later date in Europe. In the meantime here's the trailer
