“You’ve got to do something stupid once a year.” In this video, Alex Honnold attempts a challenge: 290 pitches on his 29th birthday, in Squamish, BC. He hit his goal in just 16 hours. That’s just over 18 pitches an hour, including down-climbed pitches. According to the RV Project, who filmed the day, Honnold almost didn’t stop there, saying, “I almost feel like I should do ten more, then I could like, ‘Yay, 300!’ But that would be dumb.”
