Greatest El Capitan climber ever

Alone on the wall, freestyle soloist Alex Hunnold, climbed 3,000 feet up El Capitan’s shear wall without ropes or safety gear—just fingertips and sticky-shoed toes—in four minutes shy of four hours.

He says he’s accepted death, so isn’t overly bothered by fear. But he carries a bag of chalk dust to dry the perspiration off his hands. Well, I guess.
