When I saw the 60 minutes special
: "The Ascent of Alex Honnold
," I couldn’t even fathom the thought of free solo climbing. I am not sure I could ever even dream of doing the climbs that were featured even if I could use ropes. Now, I am by no means a climber but I have done in-door and well… that seems hard (but FUN) to me. I can’t even imagine hanging from my fingertips with one false move leading to a quick, painful fall resulting in my death.
This seriously takes dedication, practice and focus. When this special dove into his life, it literally is all he does. He lives out of his van and goes after climb after climb.
