I've said it before and I'll say it again. Alex is either an alien or some kind of mutant.

I smell 'Piolet d'Or.'

Not this year, the "big list" has already been published...

Still impressive though... I could see them taking free climbing to himalaya, Bhagirathi 3, Arwa tower and so on... La sportiva might have to make them some insulated rock shoes though..

Dawn Wall. Sendero Luminoso free solo. Now the Fitzroy traverse. Human powered flight must be up next. I'm buying Brendan Leonard a beer and planning a word tour of the greatest 5.7's ever known... Honnold doing this on his first trip is like learning Messner soloed Everest without supplemental oxygen.

Thanks Rolo - the inspirational climbing is a perfect off-set to the tragedy.

Trekking in the Fitzroy is not a bragging, crip sake, this site.

Just trying to put this event in scale for those who may not get it.

Carry on, I'm just super amazed and impressed. :)

Dinners on me boys.

The list you refer to is for climbs completed in 2013. If I am not mistaken I believe Caldwell and Honnold completed their climb in 2014:-)
