“You’re fully present the entire time. I think that’s the appeal of free soloing. They’re aren’t that many things in life that make that present.” –Alex Honnold
My palms are still sweaty 10 minutes after watching the video below. No joke. Watching people climb, let alone free solo, just gives me the heebie-jeebies. It sends my anxiety through the roof.
With that being said, I’m so glad that I watched the entirety of the video. It’s basically 35-mins of continuous entertainment, amazement, and thrills.
Check out the full video from Magnus Midtbø below!
Magnus is clearly no ordinary YouTuber. He’s a very good climber, but going free soloing on an unfamiliar line with Alex Honnold had to be an intimidating experience.
Also, Honnold’s flex of being able to record while barely clinging on to the side of a mountain face was subtle, but definitely noted. That man is something else…
Kudos to Magnus for stepping up to the plate and literally risking his life for content. It was awesome to watch.
