Alex Honnold – TED Talk on Free Soloing El Cap
Honnold on how he erred on his Half Dome Solo, and why El Cap was redemption.
Imagine being by yourself in the dead center of a 3,000-foot vertical cliff—without a rope to catch you if you fall. For professional rock climber Alex Honnold, this dizzying scene marked the culmination of a decade-long dream. In a hair-raising talk, he tells the story of how he summited Yosemite’s El Capitan, completing one of the most dangerous free-solo climbs ever.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference.
