Alex Honold on Free Soloing El Capitan

In this TED Talk, Alex Honnold talks about how he was able to feel so comfortable on his iconic Freerider free solo, and how he overcame his fear. Honnold starts with a brief version of how he became a climber, and then tells the story of his two most significant free solos: Half Dome and El Capitan.

My hands sweat just thinking about it.
