The Nose: Alex Honnold once more sets a new speed record
May 30, 2018 11:14PM
As I've mentioned before I don't appreciate those speed records but I really admire Alex Honnold for his accomplishments.
He still comes across as a very down to earth guy.

I'm sure one day The Nose will be conquered in less than 2 hours. It's only a matter of time (literally).

Lets just hope he doesn't come "down to earth" in record time.

I hope that very much too.

He seems to be a very calm guy and not necessarily an "attention seeker" like some who fell to their death.
I can't really make a judgement as I know none of them personally. But there are certainly differences, e.g. initially I was impressed by Dean Potter but was very upset when he climbed on Delicate Arch.

Let's hope the best for all of them. It's certainly impressive what they do. I couldn't get such a wall up 10ft. high without falling three times.
