The Full Video Of Alex Honnold Freesoloing 2,500 Feet Up El Sendero Luminoso is Nuts

On January 15, 2014, Alex Honnold free-soloed El Sendero Luminoso (The Shining Path) in El Portrero Chico, Mexico in a little over 3 hours. The climb rises 2,500 feet to the summit of El Toro. It could be the most difficult rope-less climb in history.


I don’t know what to say. Just nuts. And before the climb he’s asked about the conditions, and he says they are “suboptimal”. I have a hard enough time climbing stairs. For his next video, we will see him attempt not to drown in all the pussy in the world.

In case you were wondering how it was filmed, here’s a behind the scenes pic from Camp4 Collective
