Alex Honnold Birthday Challenge
by

"August 17th, 2014. Squamish, BC. World-famous climber Alex Honnold celebrates his 29th birthday by doing the thing he loves most: climbing. Most climbers would settle for a numerically appropriate 29 routes to celebrate their 29th birthday, but not Alex. The free solo extraordinaire (and part time masochist) instead elects to tick a massive 290 pitches over the course of one day. With just 16 hours of daylight available, Alex must average a climb every 3 minutes, racking up more climbing in a single day than most people manage in the space of a year.
