About The Book

Riveting...Honnold is neither crazy nor reckless. Alone on the Wall reveals him to be an utterly unique and extremely appealing young man.Jon Krakauer A twelve-year-old kid in the audience raised his hand and asked, Arent you afraid youre gonna die?Without missing a beat, Alex shot back, Weve all gotta die sometimes. You might as well go big.Alex Honnold is 28 years old, and perhaps the worlds best free solo climber, scaling impossible rock faces without ropes, pitons or and support of any kind. There is a purity to Alexs climbs that is easy to comprehend, but impossible to fathom; in the last forty years, only a handful of climbers have pushed free soloing to the razor edge of risk. Half of them are dead. From Yosemites famous Half Dome to the frighteningly difficult El Sendero Luminoso in Mexico, Alone on the Wall is structured around Alexs seven most extraordinary climbing achievements so far. These are tales to make your palms sweat and your feet curl with vertigo. Together, they get to the heart of how - and why - Alex does what he does. Exciting, uplifting and truly awe-inspiring, Alone on the Wall is a book about the essential truths of risk and reward, and the ability to maintain a singular focus, even in the face of extreme danger.
