Will the pants-falling-off thing become a trend in sport climbers next? Stay tuned

Just leaves me speechless . . .

I think it was Yogi Berra who said, "The future just ain't what it used to be." When we let money become involved with anything, whatever that thing is, it becomes subject to commercial pressures. I got forced into a photo article once but I took no money. I agreed to do it under the condition that there could be no spectacular photos. There were none.

It is nice to get money for nothing. But nothing usually turns into something.

On another subject, I think every man really needs to have a daughter.

Hope he got some money and a good girlfriend outta this gig.

When you have a daughter the opposite sex becomes not quite so opposite. No longer a commodity. In fact your thoughts do indeed gravitate towards 12 gauge shot guns and double ought buck shot.

Anything that's good for Alex I'm good with... and I think his annual compensation isn't 100th of what it should be. On the other hand, I do think if I was gay I would like those pictures better. haha

If a female climber posed liked that it would be considered sexist and demeaning. Good article but the photographer probably loves the D. NTTIAWWT.

Not by me. Just by folks who have not managed to shed their puritanical upbringings.

Looks like he should be standing Castro and 18th St. hustling for a homo blowjob

Oh my god, that was soooo inappropriate. He is just a guy exercising his freedom of expression.

Stylist Michelle Cameron

A stylist for a photo-shoot of a climber? Baffling. I'm doubtful it was his idea to have a stylist on board. More likely standard procedure for such a journal. But still, it is defiling to the sport; practically mocking it.

It's been years (decades) since I've done any climbing; but I don't remember anything about a "stylist" involved in any photography or journal articles of the rock stars of that era.

No disrespect intended for Mr. Honnald, his achievements; nor is there any criticism aimed at the fame or financial gain he reaps for his amazing skills and efforts.

I don't care how nice a guy he was, he just sold his soul for a handful of shekels.

He sold his soul by appearing in a, Magazine? Yea, right. . . .It would seem that Alex has a life, unlike more than a few Posters here. . .

I remember someone in the art world saying that Ansel Adams' importance was diminished because he allowed his "portraits" to be reproduced en mass. Still, I admire his voice for conservation.

Alex is probably one of the smartest climbers around, I'm pretty sure he can take care of himself.

Climbing was defiled YEARS AGO the first time a climber sold a piece of gear to another climber.

I briefly met him this summer at the Wild Iris Festival in Lander. He was doing a North Face expo gig. Had to do the gig to keep his sponsorship, I'm sure, but didn't do a bit of showing off. A real quiet, seemingly very nice young person.

To say that Alex has more of a life than someone you don't know is sad, not to
mention condescending and narrow-minded.

I am sure Mr Honnold is a very nice person. I just happen to think more highly
of those climbers who have forged a real life and pay their own way like
George Lowe, Ed Hartouni, or the many weekend warriors who lead their lives
of quiet, if noble, desperation.

I guess it's a matter of pose. Shirtless in the right circumstance, and the most homophobic hard man would exclaim like a school girl.

Go for it Alex. It's safer than FS'ing the Nose, and the pay is better.

Every one of you would take a dick in the ass for $50. Hypocrites.

That's a lie, Skitch! I'd go as low as a pack of cigs in the hoosegow.
