Emily Harrington and Alex Honnold Free Climb “Solar Flare” (5.12d)

By Rock and Ice | January 29th, 2017

Emily Harrington and Alex Honnold team up for a free ascent of Solar Flare (5.12d) on the Incredible Hulk, one of the biggest granite walls of the high Sierra, California.

They completed the five-pitch climb—established by Conrad Anker and Peter Croft in 2007—in one day in a celebration of their birthdays, which fall on the same day one year apart from one another.

“I was just thinking we’d climb it like normal people,” Harrington says, “but he can’t like, chill.”
