Nowadays he iis famous for his extremely dangerous hobby and holds numerous records for free solo climbing. One of his latest achievements is conquering El Sendero Luminoso. Mr. Honnold fearlessly climbed the tall rock in three hours without the use of any safety belts or other harnesses. He told the media he had kept a steady pace, although he needed to make some short stops on his way to the top of the rock.
