  1. Alex is a living super human

    Understands what your body can do and defines what your mind won’t !

  2. Anyone see the film with dean potter speed soloing el cap nose in 2001? Its amazing that alex took the yosemite valley climbing scene to the big screen. Rip dean ill never forget your bear claw hand the day i met you at slack line island in yosemite national park near the awanahee hotel.

  3. The documentary, which featured Alex’s free solo climb up El Capitan, “Free Solo,” was incredible. He didn’t use any equipment to climb! Even though I knew he would survive, I was so scared for him! It made for some great cinematic suspense! Alex and his team proved that athletes come in all shapes and sizes. The documentarians who filmed Alex’s journey up El Capitan were in incredible shape! This film showed us that the sky’s the limit when it comes to sports goals. So glad you interviewed him. He knows he’s special, but he’s also a team player can who pays tribute to those who paved the way for the growth and popularity of his sport.
