Editorial Reviews

Review

“Honnold blows wide open any conventional understanding of the term ‘comfort zone.’…He engagingly conveys his love of climbing.”
- Barbara J. King, NPR

“[Honnold] is the foremost practitioner of the dark art of free solo rock climbing―ascending extremely difficult cliffs hundreds, sometimes thousands, of feet tall without ropes or protection hardware of any kind. That is every bit as stupefying as it sounds.”
- Wall Street Journal

“Honnold here recounts his ascents on some of the world's most dangerous rock walls. You'll come away questioning his sanity for choosing this controversial sport…But it's also impossible not to feel awe.”
- People

“Honnold has free-soloed the longest, most challenging climbs ever. Most peculiar of all, even to elite rock climbers, Honnold does this without apparent fear, as if falling were not possible.”
- Daniel Duane, New York Times Magazine

“Honnold is the biggest name in a group of adventure athletes engaging in high-risk live action-sports spectacles that seem to be pulled from the Evel Knievel playbook.”
- Grayson Schaffer, Outside

“Alex is really the first climber to rise from the margins of this lonely fringe sport to become a kind of celebrity.”
- Josh Dean, Men's Health
