    I’m planning to climb the nose. My partner and I are planning a 4 day ascent. He did the nose and two other routes in a day. Just insane.

    Nah, it'll probably be during one of his hundreds of non-filmed climbs, honestly.

    Watching faux intellectuals like Joe Rogan interview him exposes the sheer intellect and genius of Alex Honnold. He is such an impressive human being.

    Joe Rogan is a mongoloid and Alex is perhaps the most based individual alive. The dichotomy is insane.

    If I ever meet Honnold, I'm going to explain that opening this thread to see if he died or not is a bigger rush than any climb he'll make.

    Then I'll ask him if he's seen Meru and tell him it was sweet. Established dominance and all.

    Rogan is a knuckle dragging ape and I hate that Patrice O'Neal isn't alive to make fun of him for acting like he's not a moron.

    His wife is very pregnant currently, so I imagine he's trimmed back at least on the freesoling stuff at the moment.

    A few weeks ago I got a Honnold video recommended on YT. I was excited to watch. It was titled something like "Jared Leto Directs" Supposed to be a mini documentary on Alex. The basically just hiked, not climbed up a mountain, while showing shots of Leto 'directing' It was basically an excuse for Leto to say he climbed a mountain with Alex Honnold.

    It was a waste of 20 min. Worse, I kept getting recommendation's for his other 'documentaries' If you see that video - DONT WATCH!

    Just watched this. Pretty insane he was able to do that. But goes to show how well the Nepalese people have evolved and are acclimated to that type of environment.
    Didn't realize he was the one who took that famous photo of the Everest queue. It's still crazy to me how many people are still unprepared and need rescuing and/or die on those mountains.
    Pretty crazy luck he was able to summit K2 and Annapurna in the same season. They kinda glossed over the fact that those 2 are usually the most difficult and deadliest to climb. Some seasons no one is able to summit.

    How did they gloss over K2? They spent extra time to go out of their way to show how no one could make it up there in 2 months. Then he shows up says welp that’s what we’re here to do. They all tell him no. He gets them all shit faced. Then they go up at night, fix ropes, summit, and everyone else was then able to go.

    Just figured they'd spend more time on it and Could've built it up more Since its possibly the deadliest mtn with Annapurna. Just a small gripe

    Watched, was impressed throughout…then the final scene with the foreshadowing of them not returning, girlfriend freaking out, not being able to get up the mountain…it was like Zach’s Story, could see the hurt from a mile away.
