  2. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    A little more, kind of continuing my post above.

    Published 2 December, this is a most marvelous interview, the best I've heard yet. It's all about...

    Yes, it won. :sun:



    And yes, a good one. Jimmy Chin is really intelligent and articulate about climbing. One of quite a few, but he knows the culture very very well, as a cutting-edge...
  4. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    Bridging over to something closely connected: one of the reviews of Free Solo said it was the best extreme sports documentary since The Crash Reel. I'd never heard of that, so I went to find it and...
  5. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    I finally watched it all from start to finish last night. I'd seen a bunch of clips, followed the interviews, and knew a lot about it, but hadn't actually seen the documentary.

    It's VERY VERY VERY...

  7. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    Fantastic, thanks. :star: Just 7 minutes, but a most excellent summary of the entire thing.

    Fascinating for me — I never knew this! — was that Alex Honnold started solo climbing (alone, with no...

    And a little more. This interview session, filmed with the live audience at the Toronto International Film Festival, is NOT scary. Dennis, Ivy, I promise. :)

    But it may be of interest to anyone...
  9. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    Here's a 10 minute short feature on all the issues about filming the climb, which were many.

    Very, very interesting..... and also quite hard to watch, really. :)

    Or his mother. :)

    I actually think he's a real example to many. He cares about her a lot. (His mother, too!) And he's smart and grounded enough that he knows he can't continue doing this forever,...
  11. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    Or sometimes even less. There are some really hard-to-watch clips shown here, in this excellent short piece by ABC. (Dennis, look away! :P )

    For those few with nerves of steel, it's well worth the...
  12. Re: Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    More: much of this video about Honnold is extracted from his feature on 60 Minutes, back in 2012. He was filmed for TV solo-climbing a slightly easier route than his extraordinary El Capitan feat,...
  13. Joe Rogan with Alex Honnold: the greatest athletic achievement of all time

    I've posted this (for now) under The Human Condition. The interview is by Joe Rogan, who brought rock climber Alex Honnold on to his show for the second time after the National Geographic documentary...
