    Watching this guy (Alex Honnold ) take on the challenge of climbing El Capitan without any ropes was incredibly engrossing and jaw-dropping, while at the same time nervewracking, even though I knew he didn't die.

    Not only was the challenge stunningly life-threatening, but the insight into the mindset of Alex was also captivating.

    Bloody hell. I've been to Yosemite and that mountain is so huge that you can see it from over a mile away in the distance and it STILL looks huge. Must watch this.

    It's a beautiful place, so peaceful and surreal. Our last visit there was not long after the fires and it was really hard to digest all the damage that happened.

    Yes, a lot of it was closed off last year, we were lucky to arrive after they had made it safe. The burnt trees went on for miles and even though we were a few months after the fire, the stench was really strong.
