Brette Harrington on Mountaineering with Marc-Andre Leclerc in The Alpinist [Exclusive Interview]

The Alpinist with Brette Harrington and Marc-Andre Leclerc

The Alpinist with Brette Harrington and Marc-Andre Leclerc

Couples that do everything together will often stay together. For Brette Harrington, her life joys and experiences with Marc-Andre Leclerc were with mountain climbing and living together in the wilderness. In the documentary The Alpinist, their lives are captured perfectly as the film looks into the life of elusive alpinist Marc-Andre Leclerc, who oftentimes climb solo.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Marc-Andre Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. On remote alpine faces, the free-spirited 23-year-old Canadian makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history. Yet, he draws scant attention. With no cameras, no rope, and no margin for error, Leclerc’s approach is the essence of solo adventure. Nomadic and publicity-shy, he doesn’t own a phone or car and is reluctant to let a film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. Veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer (The Dawn Wall) sets out to make a film about Leclerc but struggles to keep up with his elusive subject. Then, Leclerc embarks on a historic adventure in Patagonia that will redefine what is possible in solo climbing.
