August 17th, 2014. Squamish, BC. World-famous climber Alex Honnold celebrates his 29th birthday by doing the thing he loves most: climbing. Most climbers would settle for a numerically appropriate 29 routes to celebrate their 29th birthday, but not Alex. The free solo extraordinaire (and part time masochist) instead elects to tick a massive 290 pitches over the course of one day.
