Adam Ondra and Alex Honnold talk

Of course, It would be way more fun to climb (and talk) with Alex Honnold (on) some sick big wall, but for now, we have to be satisfied with this awesome talk we had!

Alex is an unbelievably relaxed guy and this also applies to his cool climbing style. It was quite surprising to find out that, for Alex, free soloing El Cap was a bigger chill than climbing on our Czech sandstone.

We covered so many great topics. Alex shared inspiring experiences and thoughts and besides the funny story of how we have met, we talked about our climbing efforts, tried to figure out if climbing harder routes makes us noticeably stronger, chatted about sport climbing, speed climbing, how do we cope with so much attention and if there are any responsibilities connected to being a public figure. And much more. Enjoy!

And if you didn't see the previous talk with Tommy Caldwell, make sure to check it out!

Nice to see the two of you talking for a while! Thanks for sharing your viewpoints on the interesting topics. Make the best out of these strange times and stay psyched!
Greetings from Freiburg in Germany

Two awesome guys and two awesome climbers. Thanks for the great video!

I'm REALLY looking forward to a project from you two! Thank you guys for taking the time to document this convo. Loved it!

So nice to watch this conversation with two of my modern heroes and legendary climbers! It will be awesome to see both of you in a project together! Nice work guys! Keep up with the amazing and inspiring job!

Thank you so much for doing this! It was a fascinating discussion and I really appreciate both Adam's and Alex's perspectives. It's encouraging (and all too rare) to have heros in the sporting world who also seem to be wise and good humans.
