    It's impressive enough (gives me the shivers just thinking about it!), but that tower is basically a giant ladder. Alex Honnold, on the other hand, is a climbing wizard. He's only 28, and is easily the best in the world at free soloing. This vid is definitely worth watching, but to sum it up, he climbs 2000ft sheer cliff faces with no gear. Just rock shoes and a bag of chalk for his hands.
