Legendary rock climber Alex Honnold's vegan diet
(Munchies, Dec. 7, 2015) In this episode of FUEL, professional rock climber Alex Honnold shops for vegan snacks. His jaw-dropping, free-solo climbs (rope free) have cemented him as one of the most revered and respected climbers in the world. In Utah, Honnold trains and prepares for an upcoming expedition in Angola, Africa. Follow him to climbing destinations like Maple Canyon for cobble climbing and an intense alpine scramble up the south ridge of Mt. Superior with fellow "dirtbag climber" James Lucas. Before setting off for Africa Honnold, being a self-professed lazy cook, shops for vegan snacks and visits Gnarly Nutrition in search of light, tasty, and travel-friendly veggie food to keep him powered up and at top fitness level.,

How I climbed a 3,000-foot vertical cliff -- without ropes

For professional rock climber Alex Honnold, this dizzying scene marked the culmination of a decade-long dream. In a hair-raising talk, he tells the story of how he summitted Yosemite's El Capitan, completing one of the most dangerous free solo climbs ever.
