Alex Honnold, the El Sendero Luminoso in Mexico video

07.02.2014 by Planetmountain

Short video clip of American rock climber Alex Honnold who on 14 January soloed El Sendero Luminoso (7b+, 500m) up El Toro, Potrero Chico, Mexico.

Just a few seconds for the time being, in slow motion, but they more than suffice to comprehend the magnitude of Alex Honnold's recent solo ascent of El Sendero Luminoso at Potrero Chico, Mexico. Honnold is on pitch 7, a technical 7a+, dealing with hair-raising exposure. The film by Reel Rock and The North Face, with footage shot by Cedar Wright, Renan Ozturk, and SkySight RC, promises to be unmissable.
