The Most Dangerous Ropeless Climb In The History Of Yosemite Has Just Been Done

No safety gear for this one.

For years Alex Honnold has wanted to climb the great El Capitan without any safety gear at all, and finally now he has achieved his dream. This brave soul ventured 2,308 meters bareback up the sheer granite monolith. The steep side was incredibly difficult to climb but Honnold swallowed his fear and completed his mission.

According to National Geographic, “He ascended the peak in 3 hours, 56 minutes, taking the final moderate pitch at a near run. At 9:28 a.m. PDT, under a blue sky and few wisps of cloud, he pulled his body over the rocky lip of summit and stood on a sandy ledge the size of a child’s bedroom.”

One man, less than four hours, and one dream completed; now what’s next?

Here is an illustration of the ascent from National Geographic:
