That's the final jewel in the all-encompassing climbing crown. Honnold is unmatched. The most impressive sports achievement of all time, of any sport.

Puts a whole new spin on the term, "big time."

Caldwell called it the "Moon Landing" of free soloing. I see it more like the Big Bang of a whole new world of adventuring. Probably not sustainable, but...

Unreal. Well done Alex.

Is the "Endurance Corner" comparable to the Salathe Headwall? Will that be the next free solo objective?

He should put himself out to pasture and start charging a large stud fee.

How long before it gets repeated and by who? Is there anyone else in the same league as Alex?

What an amazing feat

The one thing I've admired about climbers they're funny...

Incredible accomplishment, he's a generation ahead of whoever is #2. Hope he doesn't die posing for the cameras, though.

nothin' but respect.

respect as a person's gotta do what a person's gotta do... and he just did something... that's for sure.

at the same time, i'm not sure i feel comfortable contributing to any celebrations until his primary job becomes reminding us we are all "stoopid gross materialist americans" or some such, in the supertopo virtual reality old folks home circa 2050 or so...

until then: all the best alex... and in the word of ali g... respek.

Nope, since I don't even know what it's like roped. Anyone have a video clip of it?

Alex is truly a brother from another planet. Truly amazing!!! Just the thought of soloing the Freeblast face pitches is enough to make me soil my trousers much less the harder pitches!! Fantastic achievement!
