Alex Honnold has always played by his own rules. He is a great climber.

Have any of you seen the Sender Films video "Alone on the Wall" of Honnold free-soloing Half Dome? I know it is a few years old, but it was the first footage that I saw of him. It blew my mind! Going up the Half Dome cables alone was one of the most terrifying things I have ever done, so for him to climb it (among all the other mountains that he solos) with no rope is just mind numbing to me. I can't even imagine!

He is amazing. I watch anytime I have an opportunity to see him climb.  

FYI, he is a fun one to follow on social media.
