"If he falls, he dies"
Alex Honnold is out of his mind. He's a free-climber, which means he does what other extreme rock climbers do, except he does it without any ropes.
If he falls, he dies. Simple.
But he hasn't fallen, at least not yet. And he's done some pretty ridiculous shit. This is a beautiful video for a handful of reasons: namely, the scenery is amazing, the feat is stunning (he actually did it), the preparation is really intense, and the cinematography is really cool, too.
I just can't help thinking....
One big gust of wind, and he gets knocked off his hold and falls.
Hell, one small gust of wind, and he gets knocked off.
