Of Choss and Lions — Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright in Kenya

Join Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright in their shenanigan-filled winter expedition to Kenya, where they encounter wild animals, chossy first ascents, and a severe bout of elevation sickness on Mt. Kenya—one of Africa’s highest peaks. It’s entertaining, to say the least.

Today was a lot of fun, even though a lot of the time I was like, I’m gonna f****ing die, I’m so hot, and I think I’m going to throw up because I’m so nauseous … but it was a great day, I had a lot of fun!
