If they want to take ridiculous risks, then that's their call. 

But I feel for all those part of the support crew and film crew, family and friends, who would be there and see it. Imagine how they would feel, the guilt and their sense of responsibility even if they weren't responsible directly and couldnt have done anything to prevent it? 

You understand that when you listen to some of the film & support crew talk on the doco, Free Solo. They talk about the responsibility they feel in doing what they're doing, and how they want to be there, but don't want that fact to be any influence in alex's climb, or break his concentration in any way.

except it is also clear that not being an influence is entirely impossible given the fact that they are there, filming him. Just the fact it is being filmed changes the way you approach the climb, and possibly even your motivations and thinking. 
 

Great film.

Yep, and worried he was going to attempt before he was ready just because the film  crew were waiting.....
