You might recognize him as the subject of the new Oscar-winning Best Documentary, FREE SOLO, a film about his death-defying ropeless journey up 3,000 feet of vertical cliff face in Yosemite. But Alex Honnold is also an engaging writer, and this peek into his thought processes is fascinating (and accessible to people who have never touched a climbing wall in their lives). A dizzying read that will fuel your sense of adventure.
