alexhonnold Big congrats to @emilyaharrington for climbing Freerider in a day yesterday. We didn't send but it was an amazing effort, especially for her first time climbing El Cap in a day. I wish I had a rad climbing photo but we were moving too fast and I had my phone hidden away because of all the offwidthing climbing. Instead we only got a summit selfie. Way to go, Em! Big day out!! @thenorthface @lasportivana 5d

alexhonnold If you look very very closely there's some rock climbing going on in this pic. When @samuelcrossley heads off to get the wide shot he doesn't mess around! Yosemite in all its glory! 3w

alexhonnold Goodbye China - it's been a pleasure! @jimmy_chin captured me sticking the crux moves on Corazon de Ensueño, one of the most impressive long routes I've ever seen. Thanks @_felipecamargo_ for being an amazing partner and @calstrin and @ladzinski for the good times. And thanks to @rocker_qd for all the help with everything and of course @thenorthface for allowing us to go. 1mon

alexhonnold Yesterday I got to climb the amazing @arnaudpetit_climb route Lost in Translation (4 pitch 5.13b) up the right side of the great arch in Getu. Such outrageous 3D climbing on tufas and stalactites. Thanks @rocker_qd for the long lens photo. And thanks @jimmy_chin for belaying instead of snapping pics for a change! 1mon

alexhonnold Thanks so much to @_felipecamargo_ for supporting me on the 3rd ascent of Corazon de Ensueños (8 pitch 5.14b). He made the second ascent 2 days before but I just wasn't quite able that day. So he climbed the whole route again to support my attempt. I guess that what it's like to be maybe the strongest climber in South America. It's been such a good adventure climbing in Getu!
This pic doesn't really do the position justice - we're over 200ft up on the underside of the great arch. But it's the best I could do while belaying... @thenorthface

alexhonnold @_felipecamargo_ psyched to find a good rest on the most impressive roof either of us has ever had the pleasure of climbing on.
Also, for those that think that Getu is closed because of a hotel they built in the arch: the structure below him is the extent of the construction. It's actually more like a rest stop for tourists - snacks, a viewing platform and bathrooms. It's all nicely done and doesn't impact the climbing at all.
Such an amazing place! Thanks @thenorthface for letting us go on a sport climbing expedition!

alexhonnold Biggest arch I've ever seen!! The limestone in China is certainly inspiring! @thenorthface 1mon

alexhonnold Headed to China today for a quick sport climbing trip - figured I'd try my hand at the classic packing photo. Mostly I just wanted to share my reading list for the trip, though I guess the rest of the gear is important too. It's one of those days when I really appreciate my sponsors! 2mon

alexhonnold @cedarwright offwidthing towards the bright lights of heaven. Nothing like terrible belay pictures to get you stoked on old adventures. Cedar showed me how it's done on Trench Warfare (5.12d). @thenorthface #tbt 2mon

alexhonnold First ascenting above the Green River on a super fun @thenorthface expedition a few years ago. I named this route the Green Dragon - it's a pitch of 5.13 bolted arête climbing to access the amazing 5.13 splitter crack and then it topped out the rim with a slabby pitch of 5.12-. @dawoods89 supported me on the send! Probably still the biggest thing he's climbed :) Photo:@celinserbo 2mon

alexhonnold Still trying to learn how to ski - @maurybirdwell captured this photo of me staggering to the summit of Mt Superior above Salt Lake City. Pretty beautiful day out, even if I still don't really know how to do anything... 3mon

alexhonnold In Washington DC for a few talks and found the time for sightseeing. This FDR quote really struck me. Such a change of tone from so much of modern politics. 3mon

  •   maredoe Took a similar picture which also meant the same to me. Amazes me that we all can't see this or understand it. 1w
  •   ferna.johnson Just finished your book! 🏽 Thumbs up! Love the heart behind the Honnold Foundation. Keep up the good work & the amazing climbing! (Hope you added a route in Hetch Hetchy to your tick list - although the Karakoram range looks way more sick!) Hope to run into ya in the Bay or the Valley again! Best of luck to you. 5d

alexhonnold Today I got to go mountain climbing in the Cascades with my favorite guide - @colinhaley1. Nothing like soloing rock in ski boots! @thenorthface @lasportivana 3mon
