Alex Honnold Reflects on His Free-Solo Ascent of El Capitan

On Saturday, June 3, rock climber Alex Honnold scaled El Capitan in Yosemite Valley from base to tip in just under four hours, without using a rope or any protective gear. It’s a feat that climbers like Tommy Caldwell have described as “unfathomable†and others as “one of the greatest athletic achievements of all time.†In other words, it’s nothing short of superhuman — a climb for the ages.
