The story of the greatest climbing feat ever undertaken - Alex Honnold's 2017 solo, rope-less free climb of the legendary 3000-foot vertical cliff, El Capitan.

One slip, one false move, one missed toehold, and you're dead.

On 3 June 2017, veteran adventure journalist and professional climber Mark Synnott was in Yosemite to witness something that only a handful of people knew was about to occur: the most famous climber in the world, Alex Honnold, was going to attempt to summit one of the world's most challenging ascents: a route called Freerider on the notorious rock formation, El Capitan. It is an extraordinarily dangerous and difficult climb, and yet Honnold was going to do it 'free-solo'. Meaning no help. No climbing partner. No equipment. No rope. Where a single small mistake would mean certain death. To most, it would be an insane proposition. But most are not Alex Honnold, and few know this better than Mark Synnott, which is why National Geographic sent him there to cover the story.
