    This is Alex Honnold. He climbs without a rope! Here he is enjoying the view from Half Dome at Yosemite National Park.

    Love this place but no way would I sit on the edge like that!!! Yosemite half dome at National Park, Sierra Nevada of California

    Living on the Edge Would you ever dare to sit on the edge like that ? The person sitting on that ledge is Alex Honnold. He’s been proclaimed the best free soloist (i.e., climbs without ropes) in the world. The startling image shows Mr. Honnold midway up Half Dome, an incredibly challenging granite dome in Yosemite National Park 4,737 ft (1,444 m) above the valley floor
