VIDEO: Rock climber ascends 1,500-foot wall without gear
This video of a rock climber hanging on for dear life from a 1,500-foot wall will have you on the edge of your seat.
Alex Honnold is known for his free solo ascents, which means he doesn’t use ropes or any protective gear. Last month, he climbed El Sendero Luminoso, a massive rock formation located in El Potrero Chico, Mexico.
The minute-and-a-half video is a trailer for an upcoming film on The North Face’s YouTube channel that captures Honnold’s full ascent.
