Go vertical!

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. Some have referred to it as the greatest athletic achievement of our time. 

I really admire rock climbers. Their sport demands tremendous mental discipline and physical endurance, as well as courage, balance, agility, familiarity with the terrain, and oftentimes, radical trust in one’s proven skills—all of which enabled Honnold to “go vertical.”
