In this insightful and thorough 1 hour and 40-minute interview, vegan ultra-endurance athlete, Rich Roll, sits down with Alex Honnold to reflect on Alex’s incredible free solo of El Cap last year, and to dive deep into the topics of adventure, fear, risk, preparation, and mastery.

No matter the risks we take, we always consider the end to be too soon, even though in life, more than anything else, quality should be more important than quantity.
