Backseat Rider show

Summary: "Alex Honnold's free solo climb of El Capitan should be celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, ever," said the New York Times. In this 30-minute conversation, Honnold and filmmaker/climber Jimmy Chin answer all of Anthony's questions about their new film 'Free Solo,' which depict's Honnold's historic, ropeless climb of "the most impressive wall on Earth," including: what was going through Alex's mind during his aborted attempt at El Cap? What did his mom think of the film? Is he still together with his girlfriend? What did he say to the guy in the unicorn costume he encountered halfway up? And also...is there anything left for this pair to conquer? -'Free Solo' trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urRVZ4SW7WU -Jimmy Chin instagram: @Jimmy_Chin -Alex Honnold instagram: @alexhonnold -BACKSEAT RIDER FACEBOOK COMMUNITY: https://t.co/qaFOi6W0Zl -NEW LYFT USERS: use promo code BACKSEATRIDER for up to $50 in free ride credit -Episode sponsored by Geico (www.geico.com), and Pluto TV (www.pluto.tv)
