American free soloist Alex Honnold has free soloed the 15 pitch/500m El Sendero Luminoso at Potrero Chico, Mexico.
The climb is highly technical and very sustained with 11 out of the 15 pitches being in the 5.12-range (7a+-7c).
Alex climbed the route a few times together with Cedar Wright, who had also prepared (cleaned) the route prior to Alex' arrival.
The actual solo climb apparently went very smooth taking only three hours.
