In January, American climber Alex Honnold soloed El Sendero Luminoso, a 500m, technical, 7c big wall at Potrero Chico, Mexico.

We've already reported the ascent with a short video clip, but now there is a longer video available. Another astonishing ascent by Alex Honnold, beautifully captured on film with amazing drone footage, and awesome climbing sequences, don't miss this video!

The climb is highly technical and very sustained with 11 out of the 15 pitches being in the 5.12-range (7a+-7cish)!
