The other day at the office, the discussion came up surrounding super high-end climbers and their personalities. A colleague made a sweeping generalization that all elite climbers are jerks and kind of rude. I think their thought was that to get that good at something, you have to dedicate yourself to it in a way that leaves you inconsiderate of others.
I disagree, and I think this video of Alex Honnold crushing in Indian Creek proves my point. Although his free-soling endeavors unfortunately make him a walking time bomb, what he accomplishes through his climbing he does so with an extremely humble demeanor. See for yourself...
