alexhonnold Psyched for some new approach shoes. Compare the tread on the old pair vs the new. Apparently they wear out after hundreds of pitches... 4w
  •   alexhonnold @peethleton I really appreciate the comment. I do try to use things as long as possible because I hate waste. I mourn a bit when shoes have run their course. But I don't want to fall off something cause my shoes are blown out... 4w
  •   jon47 What does "approach" mean to a pro climber? 4w
  •   dylan3496 Hey alex i know you get tons of comments, but I go to colorado state university and we have a huge climbing community here and your name is brought up in the gym everyday man. We are HUGE fans and we would love for you to stop by our rec center wall and just talk to our climbing team and climb with us if you get a chance. Id really appreciate if you could get back to me either way. Thanks! 3w

alexhonnold Sad to hear that the Cobra in the Fisher Towers fell down. A good reminder that even rock, or in this case mud, is only temporary. Glad I got a chance to climb it this Spring. Thanks @samuelcrossley for the photo. 2mon

Valencia Alex Honnold
alexhonnold While out on a rest day hike we stumbled upon an owl eating a snake in the middle of the day. I don't often get too excited about nature sightings, but an owl at midday is exciting, and an owl post hunt is even better. Gotta love rest day hikes! 2mon

alexhonnold Being in the mountains always reminds me just how small we really are. And to me that means having as small an impact on the environment as possible. So it's exciting for me to see the Obama administration getting more serious about trying to reduce carbon pollution. Not that the Climate Action Plan is perfect, but at least it's a step in the right direction. I really think that the transition away from fossil fuel use will be one of the most important things happening during my life time - it's exciting to see any progress along that front.

  •   ghost_of_buffalo @alexhonnold you should look up permaculture so you can see our true potential 3mon
  •   nmtroutbum The Chinese don't care...neither does anyone who lives in America, if they drive. So all of this mumbo jumbo about footprints etc...all hypocrisy. The Earth will take its course as men have dictated. The ignorant and uneducated populate the Earth overwhelmingly, and theyre just trying to stay fed and alive, so do you really think they care? Ha ha. This is about politics, power and money. Period. Enjoy!!! 3mon
  •   whalestagramz Way to go Alex! Makes me proud to be a climber when I see our celebrities stand up for what matters. Thanks for taking a principled stance. Still is crazy to me that this is even a little controversial, so much education left to do. Keep it up! 3mon
  •   hk954 Go watch the glaciers 'melt' in the winter when their size builds back up. Pollution, is not good, but climate change, false propaganda that turns natural earth cycles into political manipulation. You're a talented climber though! 3mon
  •   alphasteve42 @hk954 mmmm. 2 things. Yes there are cycles but we are moving the wrong direction. Following the cyclic history we should be COOLING. Second, glaciers are most definitely dissapearing and not coming back. Ie in Glacier NP the number of glaciers has gone from 150 when the park opened to 25 now. 3mon
  •   kjorocks It's not because of man, come on now people 3mon
  •   stazi77 Climate change - ha! 3w

alexhonnold This spring the guys at @stridehealth took me on a climbing tour of San Francisco. It was a surprisingly fun day of urban scrambling which took us all over the city. They've released a short film about it which can be seen at the link in their profile. Fun times in the city!! 3mon

alexhonnold My grandmother passed away a couple days ago after 95 good years of life. Of course it's sad to see her go, and she will be missed, but her life was well lived. We all have a limited time here. I'm glad hers was filled with good times and family. I'm super grateful that I just happened to visit one last time. I guess it's just a reminder to live well. Thanks for the inspiration, grandma. 3mon

Sierra Alex Honnold
alexhonnold Yesterday @daveallfrey and I completed his quest to climb El Cap 7 times in 7 days. What a week it's been! We managed to set 4 new speed records, but we also had to get up at 4am each day to avoid the heat. A great adventure with a great partner. Now it's time to rest up a few days... 3mon

alexhonnold @daveallfrey finishing up New Jersey Turnpike two nights ago. We've now done 3 El Cap speed records in 3 days! Learning how to wall climb! Few more routes to go for Dave's dream of #7in7. Might be a bit too much climbing for one week... We'll see... 4mon

alexhonnold This is why I think we should #ActOnClimate. Yosemite!!! Bonus points for anyone who can guess the route we're on today. And extra bonus for anyone who can see the climbers over on the Nose. Yes, this is a #wallgram. 4mon
