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.

By Alex Honnold / TED | October 8th, 2018

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.
