Alex Honnold Talks to Jimmy Kimmel about Free Soloing El Capitan

Climbing history was made this June when 31-year-old pro climber Alex Honnold completed the first free solo of Yosemite’s El Capitan, scaling over a half mile of vertical rock without a rope. The completely unbelievable feat set both the outdoor and mainstream world on fire so much so that Alex Honnold went on Jimmy Kimmel to talk about the climb.

One of skiing's dirty little secrets is that–at its highest levels–the sport is, well, dirty. Despite being a sport that relies entirely on an increasingly fickle and unpredictable climate–and one in which many of the most prominent athletes are advocates for environmental activism–going out and getting shots can leave a pretty large carbon footprint. Helis, snowmobiles and international flights all have two things in common: They burn a ton of fuel and are used to film damn near every ski
