Video: Black Diamond Unveils Alex Honnold Signature Spatula

I’m not a huge fan of April Fool’s Day pranks on the Internet. There was a time when they were kind of fun and funny, but now it just seems like they’re way over the top, tired, and old. Still, I couldn’t help but share this video from a few days back that would be just plain funny on any day of the year.

It comes or way courtesy of Black Diamond, who is working closely with climber Alex Honnold on a completely new product –– the Honnold Signature Spatula. If you’ve seen Free Solo you’ll definitely know why this is so funny, but even if you haven’t caught the film yet (What’s wrong with you?), you’ll still find plenty to chuckle at.
