Alex Honnold and Jonathan Siegrist climb out of their Comfort Zone

di

The video of US climbers Alex Honnold and Jonathan Siegrist training for two sports routes that are the exact opposite of their preferred style of climbing.

This short isn't about El Capitan, about Alex Honnold’s solo ascent of Freerider or the recent Speed record up The Nose with Tommy Caldwell, nor is this film about Jonathan Siegrist’s recent repeat of Jumbo Love… it’s all about training for routes that are the exact opposite of your favourite climbing style. For Honnold this means not pristine granite cracks but a series of heinous limestone crimps, while for Siegrist it’s not his favourite edges but some steep, burly climbing.
Here's how two of world’s best have fun attempting to train to improve their weaknesses.
