Of course, it would be way more fun to climb (and talk) with Alex Honnold on some sick big wall, but for now, we have to be satisfied with this awesome talk we had!
Alex is an unbelievably relaxed guy, and this also applies to his cool climbing style. It was quite surprising to find out that, for Alex, free soloing El Cap was more chill than climbing on our Czech sandstone.
We covered so many great topics. Alex shared inspiring experiences and thoughts and, besides the funny story of how we met, we talked about our climbing efforts, tried to figure out if climbing harder routes makes us noticeably stronger, chatted about sport climbing, speed climbing, how we cope with attention, and if there are any responsibilities connected to being a public figure. And much more. Enjoy!
