Alex Honnold, Cedar Wright and Maury Birdwell venture out on a “no holds barred” adventure to the wild and culturally-rich country of Kenya in a bid to climb its biggest wall, Mt. Poi, and tallest mountain, Mt. Kenya.

On the expedition, supported by The North Face, they successfully climbed Mt. Poi—Honnold made two, in-a-day ascents—and Mt. Kenya, and along the way, they established a few new routes on the Cat and Mouse formations, Honnold discovered the side effects of altitude sickness, and the team made lasting connections that will likely bring them back to Kenya one day.
