Honnold soloed up the Original Route on Rainbow Walls, a 300m 5.12b, then on the same day he went on to solo the route Prince of Darkness, a 220m 5.10c and down solo Wild Turkeys to get back to the floor after his ascent of Prince...

Honnold made a visit to the UK back in 2008 when he made several hard ascents including an onsight solo of the classic E5 finger crack of London Wall at Millstone.
