12/2/13 - On Thursday, December 5, join Goal Zero and Climbing for a Google Hangout with Alex Honnold!
When Goal Zero filmed a commercial with Honnold earlier in 2013 in Moab, Utah, Honnold decided to "casually" free solo Fine Jade (5.11a) in record time: 8 minutes, 10 seconds. The folks at Goal Zero received numerous questions on the video they posted of the feat, so they decided to let Honnold answer for himself.
So on Thursday, December 5, at 6 p.m. (MST) Honnold will be answering questions live during a Google Hangout session, with friend and climbing partner Cedar Wright acting as the moderator. Submit questions beforehand via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and include #AskHonnold. The day of, submit questions (with a YouTube or Google + account) in the live feed, taking place at climbing.com/askhonnold.
Bonus contest: We want to see your funniest #honnolding shots. From December 3 to December 8, Goal Zero and Climbing will give away three Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kits and three one-year subscriptions to Climbing for the funniest #honnolding pics. Use #Honnolding on Instagram to enter.
**KEEP IT FUNNY AND NOT DANGEROUS. Just because you’re tagging Honnold doesn’t mean you’re Alex himself, so please be safe. Disclaimer: Goal Zero and Climbing are not responsible for any injuries as a result of #honnolding.
Ready, set, #AskHonnold!
