On Saturday, Alex Honnold became the first person to free solo climb the 3,000-foot wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, California. Look ma, no rope!
"Honestly, I think this is the most satisfied I've ever been," he said afterwards. "It was exactly what I hoped for. I felt so good. It went pretty much perfectly."
