“This is Kind of Scary” – Watch Magnus Midtbø Free-Solo With Alex Honnold

The two climbers visit a tall climb in Red Rock that follows crimps, cracks and other big features

YouTube superstar and 5.15 climber Magnus Midtbø visits Red Rock with Alex Honnold for a lap up a multi-pitch sans rope. “This is a nice experience and everything, but I’m never doing this again,” said Midtbø near the top.

Honnold coaches Midtbø up the climb from above while feeding beta and talking him through the cruxes. Free-soloing can be extremely dangerous and should be left to the most experienced climbers.
