Alex Honnold: complete video of El Sendero Luminoso in Mexico

di

The complete video of American climber Alex Honnold and his solo ascent of El Sendero Luminoso (7b+, 500m) on El Toro, Potrero Chico, Mexico on 14 January 2014.

There's a distinct change in rhythm. A different tune. In the video. But obviously and above all that in the life of Alex Honnold who a month ago took the decision to climb the 500 metres of Sendero Luminoso solo. Half a kilometre of smooth vertical granite, following a series of tiny crimps towards the the top and... without a rope.
