Alex Honnold’s Urban Ascents


Alex Honnold, the world’s best free-solo climber, explores San Francisco’s urban landscape. He ticks first ascents on sculptures in Crissy Field, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the TransAmerica building.

“I spend so much more time on rock where it’s so natural to me, whereas with buildings it’s much more of an adventure…” said Honnold. “I don’t have that much experience climbing up buildings, so it’s more exciting.”
