Who would of thought that a video of Alex Honnold that doesn’t feature any climbing clips, or shots of big granite walls, or even footage of Honnold himself could be so fascinating? But this charming little animated interview feature from The North Face is just that. Fascinating. Honnold talks about everything from his love of El Cap, to the risk of death while climbing, to the creativity of his lines, to the little mice and worms that live inside the Dawn Wall at El Cap. Honnold’s easygoing enthusiasm is infectious and this short vid will leave you wanting more.
