Wanted to start this thread since I have been unable to find much about this footage online after some deep dives into google. I saw Reel Rock 14 a couple of months ago and was absolutely blown away by footage of Marc Andre (RIP) soloing a technical mixed alpine route. I have a few questions about it that I was hoping others might help answer:

1) What route is he soloing in the footage?
2) The footage is an excerpt from a documentary about MAL - does anybody have information as to when this will be released and where? I cannot find anything about it online.

In the film the footage is from the Northeast Buttress of Sleese. The trailer also includes a shot of him on Infinite Patience and a mixed/ice crag in Canada I can't place.

Pretty sure it's the Stanley Headwall.

That's what I initially thought, since he soloed 3 routes up there, but the rock looked too smooth to be on the Headwall. I could be wrong though. Regardless of location, his soloing was incredible.

Same. I'm hoping that it will be included in the release of Reel Rock 14 when it's done touring.
