Episode 133: Alex Honnold – Kind of a Big Deal.

On Episode 132, I sit down with Alex Honnold. You may have heard of him. He recently free-handed the El Capitan.

But seriously, a seriously-still-stoked Alex Honnold joins the Enormocast for his sophomore appearance. In opposition to his many recent mainstream appearances, on Jimmy Kimmel for example, we decided that a total move-for-move nerd-out on his history-making free solo of the FreeRider on El Capitan should be soup du jour on the Enormocast- a CLIMBING podcast. Alex reports the parts that truly made him nervous beforehand, the film effort, a false start, and how it made him feel to accomplish one of the, if not THE, crowning athletic achievements of human kind, EVER, ever. So strap in for this very hot, very exclusive interview. In Alex’s own words, “If you’re a climber, you pretty much have to do the Enormocast.”

On Episode 92 of the Enormocast, I reunite with a Enormo-favorite James Lucas. He left his Saturn behind, went to Spain, and climbed the Freerider in a day, all since we last heard from him in Episode 47. James continues to lead the dirtbag life, bouncing from Yosemite, to Salt Lake, and around the world. Some call him the last American Dirtbag, some call him the last Stonemaster, some just call him Peaches, but nobody doesn’t smile when JL shows up.
