Stride Health: Alex Honnold's Urban Ascents (Full Film)

39 130 Vizionare 4 mil

Spend a day in San Francisco pushing the limits with the world's best free-solo climber Alex Honnold. Presented by www.stridehealth.com.
This is the untold story Alex Honnold's first ascents of San Francisco's iconic urban landscape. Join Alex and Stride Health on a journey from the boulders of Stinson Beach to the heart of the city.
He climbs Mark di Suvero's eye-catching sculptures on Crissy Field, chimney's up the iconic Palace of Fine Arts which celebrates its 100th anniversary next year, and wraps with a daring Financial District ascent in the shadows of the TransAmerica building.
"I spend so much more time on rock where its so natural to me, whereas with buildings its much more of an adventure... I don't have that much experience climbing up buildings, so its more exciting."
You'll see the playful side of Alex, and find out what truly scares him (spoiler: Board Room balconies). Urban Ascents brings Alex back down to earth and gives us all a chance to understand how he perceives risk and has trained his body for 18+ years to reduce it.
Safety. Fun. Speed.
Why Stride Health? Because even Alex needs a spotter.
Okay, so maybe Alex is king of his free-soloing domain, but only once he carefully studies a route. Occasionally he'll slip while roped in and "take a 40-footer." If Alex hits his head or breaks a bone, we've got him covered. In his own words, Alex "wants to be a grandfather" and that means making sure his "insides are alright". The good news for Alex: with his Stride Health recommended plan, he has access to the best doctors at the lowest cost and care made easy.

    Knowing how shoddy construction can come apart, this guy needs to stop... now. All the skill in the world won't help when a 10ft section of facade comes off underneath you.

    Ya know, parkour jokes, "suicide-watch," and adrenaline junkies aside, climbing stuff from a child's age to an adult is the most free you can be. There are no thoughts except "grab the next ledge and move up." You don't know what you're missing if you've never climbed anything before.

    Alex's levels of concentration must be so epic. Just dialed in, minute after minute, totally focused on the task. The whole potential falling thing aside, I am impressed how his mind stays on point for long periods of time. It took him 4 hours to free-solo the 3000 ft El Cap. That's such an insanely long time to stay focused.

  88. Anshuman Sinha

    For the free-solo folks out there: Isn't just standing on the ledge on top of the building dangerous because of the wind? Gusts of winds can be quite strong and sudden and not something one can control or respond to super quick right? Also, when you guys are climbing particularly tall rock faces or even buildings, does wind play a factor?
