there are many obvious classics like Cliffhanger or Captain Kirk in Star Trek; then some obscure solos like the Monster's climb of the castle wall in Young Frankenstein....my vote goes to Jon Voight's midnight solo out of the river gorge in Deliverance

The Deliverance solo was most impressive because it was done under pressure of not only falling, but rape and murder as well.

The scene in Open Season 1 where the bear gets "jelly arm" while soloing the cliff and then falls.

Never had the jelly arm myself, but I've had the jelly leg a few times. It can be a real menace while soloing.

Ok, clearly these really are the best free solos, but I just found, through a climber's blog, one of the most amazing depictions of sport climbing in a movie: you're welcome
