Overview

With breathtaking free solo feats, blistering speed records and ascents of rock faces around the planet, Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright are at the top of their game in the world of professional climbing. But when they decide to link all of California’s 14,000-foot peaks via an ambitious human-powered bike tour, they find themselves out of their element. New to the sport of biking, and having underestimated the scope of the challenge, Honnold and Wright grapple with sunburned thighs, sore asses, 80-mile slogs on dirt roads, sketchy ridge traverses and, somewhere in the mix, fun. Welcome to Sufferfest, a lighthearted short film by Wright that follows the mishaps and triumphs of the pair’s epic adventure and proves that there are some types of fun that can only be achieved with a grand dose of suffering.
