A professional adventure rock climber whose audacious free-solo ascents of America’s biggest cliffs make him one of the most recognized and followed climbers in the world. As a hard-working athlete, well known for his ‘no big deal’, self-effacing attitude, is as he is for the dizzyingly tall cliffs he has climbed without ropes to protect him. Alex featured in National Geographic, international television commercials and starred in numerous adventure films including his latest one, “Free Solo”. Explore Alex’s stomping ground by climbing his favourite routes across Yosemite, including the infamous Freerider route, featured in the “Free Solo” documentary, and the route of the Nose, on which Alex broke the speed record earlier this year.
