Honnold and Florine at Touchstone

On Thursday, June 28, the pair will be stopping by Sacramento Pipeworks to sign posters, climb a little, and talk about their incredible achievement. Florine wrote the book on speed climbing, literally. Florine, along with fellow climber Bill Wright, wrote the instructional book Climb On! Skills For More Efficient Climbing. The book was a key to not only Florine's fast time on the Nose but was also one of the tools that Honnold utilized when he began speed climbing.
Check out this cool video of Florine cruising his way up the Stovelegs pitch on his record ascent of the Nose. Better yet, stop by Pipeworks and talk to these two guys about how they make it happen.
