Alex Honnold has soloed the 500m, 15-pitch El Sendero Luminoso at Potrero Chico, Mexico. 11 of the pitches are between 7a+ and 7c, in the 5.12 range. He'd already climbed it with Cedar Wright but soling it is on a whole other level....
And the news from Nanga Parbat is good as the weather seems to be steadily improving. The North face team led by Simone Moro have reported that the conditions are looking better, and Daniele Nardi, the Italian soloist is reported to have just arrived at Basecamp, stand by for more updates on the expedition.
