Solo free climber Alex Honnold is the only person in the world to have scaled El Capitan is [sic] Yosemite Park, California and survived. https://t.co/qbos6e08vO

Just more rubbish nonsense headlines from the press. they'll never get "free climbing" not being soloing

the twitter headline is ridiculous, as are a lot of the comments.

Sigh!

The first photo in the Guardian piece looks wrong, part natural part wall and a great big chain he's hanging onto!

Yeah, looks like they got the office junior to do the photoshop job on that photo. It's probably lifted from a Black Diamond catalog and they needed to hide the logo. Regarding the daisy chain... well that just a style of climbing he has used on some of his hybrid aid/free solos.

who cares, I got to watch Alex Honnold being interviewed on the C4 news when I thought I had sat down to watch it dutifully because I ought to. Followed by an interview with Booker T and the MGs! result!
