Earlier this month, Alex Honnold pulled off one of the most audacious free-solo climbs ever, up the nearly 3,000-foot vertical face of Yosemiteâ€™s El Capitan. So how does the planetâ€™s greatest climber follow it up? Not a problem. Honnold has reunited with two climbing partners, filmmaker and climber Renan Ozturk and alpinist Freddie Wilkinson, to take a second crack at a formidable route, called the Wine Bottle Tower, up the East Face of Alaskaâ€™s Mount Dickey. Menâ€™s Journal is tagging along to see if they can pull it off, and weâ€™ll have regular updates as the team makes their way up the mountain, which rises 5,000 feet from the base of Ruth Glacier.
