Marc-André Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. The free-spirited 23-year-old makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history. With no cameras and no margin for error, Leclerc’s approach is the essence of solo adventure. “To watch Marc-André Leclerc climb is to see a great artist in his element.” — Isaac Feldberg, RogerEbert.com
