Yosemite National Park–Alex Honnold has done it once again and attained another impossible feat in the world of serious climbing. After tackling El Capitan, onlookers watched as Honnold effortlessly and breathtakingly free-solo climbed into his van.
Awestruck spectators watching with eyes agape could hardly believe their camera phones at what they were witnessing/recording for Instagram, the professional mountain climber and avid reader stepped up to his white utility van and pulled himself in with absolute ease over the crux of the biscuit, the side door hole.
What was once thought an unbelievable accomplishment for humankind, to climb into a van door without safety ropes and harnesses or parachutes or life jacket has been proved believed, and somewhat realistically attainable by man.
The significance of this epic and monumental ascent is nothing short of the faked moon landing footage, in relation to what Stanley Kubrick had done for the American mentality in the space race and for cinematography in general throughout history, in relation to what Alex Honnold did in his climbing groups zen.
From inside of his van Honnold humbly took questions looking incredibly far down at the world from such a great height as he ate a pop tart and read a book about notes from some 19th century author who lived in some underground. Honnold could only thank his dearest mother.
