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:
