As reported on his 8a.nu scorecard, Alex has soloed the difficult single pitch Yosemite cracks of Cosmic Debris (5.13b / 8a finger locking) at the Chapel Wall and the 5.12d / 7c crack of of Heaven at Glacier Point, which he flashed by the way. Yes, a flash-solo of a 7c crack with 1000m of slab for a landing.
Also on Alex's 8a scorecard are reports of longer, easier solos including the 2000ft Ho Chi Mihn and the 2000ft route of The DNB and also the very exposed crack of Alien Roof (5.12b) finish to the Rostrum.
You can listen to some of Alex's thoughts on soloing in this video portrait from Black Diamond:
