Alex Honnold Freesoloing Heaven, 54 kb

In tonight's Friday Night Video, we see Alex Honnold soloing Heaven 5.12d in Yosemite Valley. The route starts 3000ft above the valley floor and despite being "only 18 moves long" over 30 ft of climbing, the exposure and scenery doesn't disappoint. This short film made by Jimmy Chin for Squarespace gives an insight into Alex's mind as he attempts to solo a route which had previously only been soloed once before by Dean Potter. [ full story ]
