Alex Honnold is the world’s most famous rock climber. His reputation is based not only on the size of the peaks he scales, but also on the unbelievable fact that he climbs without a rope. This dangerous technique, known as free soloing, is a form of climbing that forgoes protective gear of any kind and relies entirely on physical strength and mental fortitude.  Honnold first captured national attention in 2008 when he became the first person to free solo the 2000ft North West Cliff Face of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. The average time required to complete the climb with a harness is about 2 days. Alex completed the climb in under 3 hours.  In 2012 Honnold improved this time to 1 hour and 22 minutes.
