The Impossible Climb: Alex Honnold, El Capitan, and the Climbing Life

The Impossible Climb

ALEX HONNOLD, EL CAPITAN, AND THE CLIMBING LIFE
By MARK SYNNOTT

“One of the most compelling accounts of a climb and the climbing ethos that I’ve ever read.” –Sebastian Junger

The Impossible Climb climaxes with Alex Honnold’s unprecedented, almost unimaginable feat: a 3,000-foot vertical climb up El Capitan in Yosemite, without a rope. Mark Synnott tells the story in the context of a deeply reported account of his ten-year friendship with Honnold, multiple climbing expeditions, and the climbing ethos they share.
