On June 3rd, 2017, Alex Honnold became the first person to free solo Yosemite's El Capitan—to scale the wall without rope, a partner, or any protective gear—completing a feat of climbing long considered impossible. Although he is still in his thirties, Honnold looks back here on what has already been an astonishing career, and reveals what he has learned about living fearlessly, taking risks, and maintaining focus even in the face of extreme danger. In riveting detail, Honnold also recounts the story of his historic 3 hours and 56 minutes on the sheer face of El Capitan.
"Honnold blows wide open any conventional understanding of the term 'comfort zone'... He engagingly conveys his love of climbing."—NPR
