How Alex Honnold Climbed El Capitan And Why It Matters

Free Solo & Courage Under Pressure


Alex Honnold free solo

Would you dedicate years of your life to the disciplined pursuit of an idea, dream, or goal? What if the stakes were so high that failure would result in death? How might you act in the face of that fear? You would have to totally commit to the cause and invest an intense amount of time and energy into that project.

We choose to create our character, and we must manage the consequences - intended, or otherwise. We can learn how to transcend mediocrity and achieve great things through the examples of other people who have climbed seemingly insurmountable mountains of resistance.

In this episode, you’ll hear my reflections about a man who has raised the bar for humanity, and restored a deep sense of wonder in the hearts of people like myself, and maybe even you. His legacy is both terrifying, and awe inspiring.
