“Type 4 fun, where it’s just stupid.”

– Alex Honnold

After a winter “off”, it’s time to start dialing up the training for more epic adventures, leading to, yet another, fall birthday challenge. So, for this week’s Psyche, here’s a good ‘un featuring Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright linking all of California’s 14ers by bike. You’ve probably seen Honnold, looking casual, climbing ropeless on some of the world’s most imposing faces yet, here, we see him in a different vein. Tackling something foreign to these  professional climbers has them both on edge, throughout, culminating in something they call one of their greatest adventures–and that’s saying something from these two. Their struggle exemplifies exactly why I do my challenges. When we get pushed beyond our comfort zone, transformations happen. And that makes life just swell.
