    Description

    Includes two new chapters on Alex Honnold's free solo ascent of the iconic 3,000-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park

    On June 3rd, 2017, Alex Honnold became the first person to free solo Yosemite's El Capitan - to scale the wall without rope, a partner, or any protective gear - completing what was described as "the greatest feat of pure rock climbing in the history of the sport" (National Geographic) and "one of the great athletic feats of any kind, ever" (New York Times). Already one of the most famous adventure athletes in the world, Honnold has now been hailed as "the greatest climber of all time" (Vertical magazine).

    Alone on the Wall recounts the most astonishing achievements of Honnold's extraordinary life and career, brimming with lessons on living fearlessly, taking risks, and maintaining focus even in the face of extreme danger. Now Honnold tells, for the first time and in his own words, the story of his three hours and 56 minutes on the sheer face of El Cap, which Outside called "the moon landing of free soloing.... A generation-defining climb. Bad ass and beyond words.... One of the pinnacle sporting moments of all time."

    Surprisingly Slow Read

    What could have been an exhilarating journey, was a surprisingly bum read with way too much filler. This could be a fun read at three chapters long. Disappointing.

    A damn boring read.

    Boring, ended up disliking Alex Honnold

    I'd you are a climber and can really truly appreciate technical climbing language then you may be able to hang on and finish book just to read about Alex's climbing feats. If you are a just a reader of outdoor non- fiction who loves to learn about other adventure sports and exciting outdoor stories, don't waste your time. There are a lot of stories that may be exciting If you are a climber, but the writer fails to make them seem so or even make me care what will happen to the individuals in the experience. I ended up not finishing and skipping around since overall, I ended up with an actual dislike for Alex, the main subject. Found him selfish and inhuman most of the time, at least from the perspective of the book. Although to be fair, people who are " genius" in their own field often come off that way whether or not they are. Overall boring and uninspiring to a non rock climber.

    Meh

    The narrator for 'Alex' is incredibly obnoxious and doesn't seem to understand his personality at all. I gave up because of that. While Alex might not be for everyone, in this book, he comes off as a self-entitled a#*$ole, rather than a person who really has no filter. For climbers who have been paying attention, there is also very little new information, so far as I have read, which you wouldn't already know.

    Last few chapters were great

    I enjoyed this book, but it was a little confusing with different narrators. I saw the movie Free Solo and this book doesn't bring anything new although it gave a more in depth view of the mind of Alex. All in all a nice book.

    Alex Hannlove

    Alex Hannlove is an insanely talented guy we're lucky to have him. Never read the push by tommy caldwell.

    Not bad

    Firstly the narrarator makes Alex sound very arragont and full of himself, which judging by interviews that I have seen, doesn't seem to be the case. Secondly if you are not familiar with climbing jargon and know climbing spots it is difficult to follow with a lot of technical language being used. Interesting story, but glad I didn't pay for it.

    Good book, bad narrating

    Wish the guy reading for Alex didn’t sound so damn douchey. After listening to actual Alex on some podcasts and knowing how douchey he ISN’T, this reader takes a lot away from Alex’s story.

    Great insight of adventure climber Alex Honnold’s mindset

    The book does a nice job of detailing Alex’s unorthodox rise to a climbing phenom. I also like how the story is told at times from Alex. He has an interesting perspective. The free solo on El Cap is exciting. You don’t need to be into climbing to learn from this read.
