Alex Honnold

Graham goes one-on-one with one of the world’s most renowned rock climbers, Alex Honnold. Known for his death-defying “free solo” climbs – where he ascends 2,000-foot rock walls without ropes or safety equipment – Honnold reflects on his mindset of casting aside fear, visualizing death and the advantages and disadvantages of living in a van. Honnold looks back on his notable climbs, including the Triple Crown of Yosemite and a 53-hour push in Patagonia. He and Graham also head out for a climb in the Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park.
