From the July 1, 2019 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


On June 3, 2017, Alex Honnold became the first rock climber to free solo Yosemite National Park’s 3,000-foot El Capitan wall, scaling the vertical rock formation alone, and without ropes, harnesses, or other climbing gear. He finished in four hours.
