Almost a decade ago, Honnold turned heads in the climbing community with successful free solo attempts of the Regular Northwest Face of Half Dome (5.12a/b) in Yosemite and Moonlight Buttress (5.12d) in Zion National Park, Utah. A team of filmmakers, led by @jimmy_chin, one of Honnold's longtime climbing partners, and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi, captured the ascent for an upcoming National Geographic Documentary Films feature.
The magazine "National Geographic" financed Alex Honnold's daring mission and, with the help of drones, filmed a documentary about his record attempt.
On June 3, professional climber Alex Honnold became the first person to free solo (climb without ropes or gear) the "Big Stone".
Honnold attempted to free-solo El Capitan in November, but abandoned the effort after about an hour, citing unfit conditions, according to National Geographic.
A lighter moment came later, Honnold said, when he passed some climbers who had spent the night on a ledge. "For more than 50 years we have proudly supported world-class athletes like Alex and celebrated their pursuits of exploration". It's something that I thought about for so long and dreamed about and worked so hard for.
National Geographic, which dubbed the climb "the moon landing of free-soloing", said Honnold trained for more than a year in locations in the United States, Europe, China and Morocco. "And then this past year, I thought that I could do it".
In the preparation stage, Honnold memorized every hand and foot placement so that he could overcome the extreme physical and mental challenge.
"It was with considerable relief that I watched him walk over the top ... and it was done", Evans said.
Honnold added, "That's before the [main] wall even starts".
