Alex Honnold stands atop El Capitan after nearly four hours of climbing alone, without ropes, any equipment or safety gear. In Yosemite National Park the granite wall known as El Capitan a famous place for rock climbers but not many do it solo with nothing but them and the mountain. Pretty amazing! The historic event was documented for an upcoming National Geographic feature film and magazine story. I can’t wait to see the documentary.
