Alex Honnold has become the first climber to free solo El Capitan in Yosemite, by climbing Freerider. On 3rd June 2017, Honnold left all ropes and gear at the bottom of the 3000ft monolith and began climbing at 5:32am, topping out in 3 hours and 56 minutes. This ascent marks the pinnacle so far of Honnold’s breathtaking CV, and is undoubtedly one of the most significant ascents in the history of the sport. UKClimbing
