Free Solo Climb of Yosemite Half Dome

An amazing 60 minutes piece on Alex Honnold climbing the shear face of Half Dome without the safety of rope. Just watching the ascent on this video is intense, so we could just imagine what it was like watching a man scale a rock that is some cases is over 90 degrees and still be able to cling on. It is pretty amazing what the human body can endure with focus, mental toughness, and the proper training. In this type of mountain climbing, there is no turning back, so you better bring your A-game.
