Alex Honnold Got His Lead Card Pulled Back in the Day

View this post on Instagram

Way back when.. before he was a household name.. before he had changed the climbing world for ever, @alexhonnold got in trouble with gym staff for skipping clips "Alex Honnold I gave him a temp lead card because he didn't have his permission card with him. He skipped TWO CLIPS on the roof, was totally shocked I pulled his card for that. I told him he needed to speak with you before he could retest. He then waited till I left the desk and tried to reason with Devin about lead climbing the rest of the night. Devin shot him down. Nicky" Nicky you are badass & thanks to @pipeworksclimbing For sending me the pic! . . #climbing #climb #crag  #rockclimbing #bouldering #sportclimbing  #tradclimbing #tradisrad  #firstascent  #bigwall #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbinggear #hiking  #adventure #timetoclimb #climbing_is_my_passion  #climbingrocksandstuff  #outdoors #mountains #liveclimbrepeat #slacklife #climbinginspiration  #climbingworldwide #climbingrocksandstuff #climbingphotography #bigwall

Honnold rolls to the beat of his own drum, and he’s been doing it since long before he was a climbing superstar.

Nicky, a staff member from Pipeworks, wasn’t amused and pulled his lead card. Thankfully, the experience didn’t deter Honnold from climbing altogether.
