Alex Honnold Solo Update:

On June 13th, Alex Honnold soloed The Phoenix (5.13) in Yosemtie. This proud ascent will likely go down as one of rock climbings most bad ass crack solos.

Not too long ago, Alex visited the northeast for a slideshow tour and was able to come to the Gunks. The day after he sent all of our proudest lines in Lost City, he decided to take his hot shot skills to the Trapps. Here is a new, never before posted, photo of Alex soloing Ken’s Crack.

BAD ASS.

Alex was quoted as saying that some of the grades at the Gunks were “uncharitable.” I bet he was talking about our 5.7 crack test piece.

PIMP.
GOOD JOB ALEX. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
