This Week in Climbing #64 (June 4, 2017)

This Week in Climbing is a weekly roundup of the best and most interesting rock climbing stuff that happened over the last week. But yesterday, Alex Honnold free soloed El Cap’s Freerider (5.13a). As far as I’m concerned, this is single most impressive feat in the history of rock climbing. While other newsworthy climbing-related stuff happened this week, Alex’s ascent is so mindblowing that really nothing else can compare. As such, this week’s news roundup is dedicated solely to Alex’s achievement.

There have been many more articles by other climbing news outlets that basically just regurgitate these NatGeo articles. Here are a few worth reading that stand out:

  • The Art Of Solo, Matt Bush [4:11] – The narration of this one is self-important and difficult to listen to, but the footage is pretty cool. Matt Bush free solos an enormous granite dome in South Africa.

  • Northern Soul [8:30] – Amazing ice climbing in northern Quebec.
  • David Fitzgerald on ‘Voyager’ (8B+) [17:40] – “This film follows Irish climber David Fitzgerald, who after taking up the sport only 5 years ago travelled to the Peak District to try the hardest bouldering problems on grit.”
