“I've done a lot of thinking about fear. For me the crucial question is not how to climb without fear-that's impossible- but how to deal with it when it creeps into your nerve endings.”
Alex Honnold

“There is no adrenaline rush. If I get an adrenaline rush, it means that something has gone horribly wrong.”
Alex Honnold, Alone on the Wall: Alex Honnold and the Ultimate Limits of Adventure

“I’ve never done drugs, and though I’ve tasted alcohol, I’ve never had a whole drink. I don’t even drink coffee. I had a small cup once—it was like drinking battery acid. I had to poop all morning. I once had a sniff of Scotch. I thought, I should be cleaning my sink with this stuff. It’s not some moral objection—drugs and booze and caffeine just have no appeal to me.”
Alex Honnold, Alone on the Wall: Alex Honnold and the Ultimate Limits of Adventure
