Honnold's Hardest Big Wall Solo - Gripping! Video


Back in January we reported on Alex Honnold's mind-blowing solo of 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)!

Here is some slo-mo footage of Alex on pitch 7 from REEL ROCK.... gripping. The full film will be released soon - watch this space.

Oddly annoying in slow motion; gives no idea of how hard he's finding it. Let's hope the full film is shot sensibly (assuming it's desirable to have it shot at all, but that's another question). jcm

disappointing to see such a high profile climber not wearing a helmet. A poor example to set. ;)
