Alex Honnold - Masters Edge On Sight & London Wall O/S Solo

Alex Honnold, one of the visiting American climbers, currently rampaging across the Peak District, has continued his gritstone demolition with an impressive on-sight solo of the classic E5 finger crack London Wall at Millstone and an on-sight ascent of Masters Edge (E7 6b), also at Millstone, reports Matt Heason on the UKC forums.

Alex is known for his bold on-sight ascents and has soloed some seriously impressive routes in the US. In the recent film 'The Sharp End' he steals the show with an audacious on-sight of a huge, soaring sandstone arête in the Czech Republic.

Alex Honnold is sponsored by Maxim, The North Face, Black Diamond and La Sportiva.
