I thought I would share with you guys as it blows my mind everytime I watch him climb.

Alex Honnold is a free solo (no ropes) climber who does some absolutely amazing stuff. Just to get 'your' mind around what he does is hard, let alone his own mind. I am in awe of how he control his negative thoughts when doing stuff like the link I have attached here.

The footage of 'Alone on the Wall' is incredible. It was on youtube but has unfortunately been pulled. He climbs the 600 metre Half Dome in Yosemite National Park without any ropes in about 2 1/2 hours. Recently there is another documentary of a first ever solo link of 3 peakes in Yosemite, including Half Dome. A climb that lasted 18 hours. 95% of this was without ropes!! This is not mountainairing, but climbing shear rock faces.

There is more stuff on youtube for anyone who may be more interested.
