Alex Honnold climbs massive rock faces without ropes. Half of his fans are scared he’ll die. The other half wants everyone to shut up about that possibility. Honnold’s pretty sick of it too. Climbing the way he does is remarkable, but what I like about him most is that it hasn’t gotten to his head. He’s blunt but friendly and always downplaying his accomplishments. He’s also a fiercely, hilariously outspoken atheist.
