Video: Alex Honnold Talks About Free Soloing El Cap

One of the biggest stories in outdoor adventure this year is definitely Alex Honnold’s free solo of El Capitan in Yosemite this past summer. In this video, we hear Alex talk about this historic feat and his inspiration for climbing, with a set of animated clips helping to convey the story. The entire video is charming and fun, while we listen to one of the greatest climbers of all time talk about one of the greatest climbs of all time. It is definitely worth the three minute time commitment, and by the end you’ll probably be wanting more.
