Watch This Man Free-Style Climb The Most Difficult Ropeless Climb Ever

In January 2014 Alex Honnold climbed a mountain face in Mexico without a rope. It was the hardest ropeless climb in history. The route is called El Sendero Luminoso, meaning the Shining Path, and rises 2500 feet to the summit of El Toro near the little town of El Portrero Chico, Mexico.

They began this crazy achievement by cleaning the path he would take. Alex Honnold and his friend would climb the mountain using traditional ropes, and remove any bushes, dirt or loose sediment they saw along the way. Having a clean route to the top of the mountain was essential for Alex’s safety.

Once the route was ready, Alex felt impatient to make the climb and so headed up the mountain. The route is called El Sendero Luminoso, meaning the Shining Path, and rises 2,500 feet to the summit of El Toro near the little town of El Portrero Chico, Mexico. He made the climb successfully, finishing in just over 3 hours.
