It seems like Alex Honnold never takes himself too serious. He’s just doing what he does because he loves it. He’s actually made fun of the art of free soloing, and shot cleverly back and forth with Jimmy Kimmel in an interview about his El Cap feat. He must be open to a lot of ideas because this one is awesome. It explains Honnold’s reasoning for a completing one of the most insane projects in the history of scaling stone. And to the layman, it’s not that easy to explain. This helps.
