Alex Honnold: 60 Minutes Story

Published On November 24, 2012 | By | Inspirational Videos, Videos

Mountain climber Alex Honnold seems to defy gravity, scaling sheer, steep rock faces with no rope and apparently no fear.

So CBS encapsulates their 60 Minutes story on climber Alex Honnold into one sentence.  Most would agree the unroped risks Alex takes are unnecessary, but most would also agree: the feats Alex is achieving are astonishing.

A well spent fifteen minutes will leave you wondering about the definition of a life well-lived, and wondering at the limits of your own physical capacity.
