Man Makes History By Climbing 1,500-Foot El Sendero Luminoso With No Net

Not The Onion:

In January, Honnold made history by becoming the first person to ever scale El Sendero Luminoso (Mexico) without the help of other climbers or safety equipment. That’s right, one wrong move could have produced devastating results.

El Sendero Luminoso is rated at 5.12d on the Yosemite Decimal System, which means “the surface is as smooth as glass and vertical.” The scale only goes up to 5.13.

Oh?
