I love scrambling.

But I’m strictly a 3-4 kind of guy.

That 5+ stuff, especially without ropes is loco.

Just watching it probably had my heart racing far more than Alex’s.

I saw Discipline, Focus, Purpose, Joy.

Great window into Honnold's emotional development. Even before they talked about his father's history Honnold reminded me of someone on the spectrum. Such a flat affect. Great build up by showing his practice runs that we could compare to his actual free solo event. Amazing example of the pinnacle of human accomplishment.

Same here. Just seeing some of his interviews you can definitely tell he falls somewhere on the spectrum.
