“I Really Wanted It To Be Badass”

More from Alex Honnold regarding his February solo of the 9 pitch 5.12b Monkey Finger in Zion:

Monkey Finger was probably my most anticlimactic “big wall” free solo. I really wanted it to be badass – for it to be something to feel proud of – but it just wasn’t. It was fun, it was good climbing, it’s a great route. But it just didn’t feel rad to me, which makes me worry that I’m getting a bit jaded. Still a good experience to be sure, and the hike off was lonely and beautiful, but just not quite the intensity that I was maybe hoping for.
