About the Author

Alex Honnold, born on August 17, 1985, is a renowned American rock climber, distinguished for his unparalleled free solo ascents of colossal rock walls. His global acclaim skyrocketed in June 2017 when he achieved the unprecedented feat of free soloing El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, scaling the 2,900-foot Freerider route at 5.13a grade. Described by the New York Times as "one of the great athletic feats of any kind, ever," this climb etched Honnold's name in history. He further solidified his legacy with the fastest ascent of the "Yosemite Triple Crown," completing the Mount Watkins, The Nose, and Regular Northwest Face of Half Dome link-up in a remarkable 18 hours and 50 minutes. In 2015, Honnold received the prestigious Piolet d'Or in alpine climbing for the Fitz Traverse in Patagonia, a five-day enchainment of the Cerro Chaltén Group. Alongside co-author David Roberts, Honnold penned the memoir "Alone on the Wall" (2015). His extraordinary achievements also inspired the 2018 BAFTA and Academy Award-winning biographical documentary, "Free Solo."
