Alex Honnold is best known for free soloing, or climbing massive cliffs without a rope. If Alex had made a false move near the top of his most famous climb up Yosemite’s El Capitan, he would have died in about 14.5 seconds – that’s how long it takes to fall 3,000 feet. Chances are that you’re facing a different set of obstacles, risks and consequences if you fail in your endeavors, but you will definitely still learn from Honnold’s discussion with Andreessen Horowitz executive Peter Levine. The two discuss preparation, perseverance, risk and philanthropy in this inspiring talk from the a16z Podcast.
