BUILT FOR HONNOLD
BD Athlete Alex Honnold has never been a fan of wide cracks. Or as he puts it a little more bluntly: “Offwidth climbing sucks.” But even Honnold has to thrust his body into deep fissures from time to time. “Many of the most classic routes in the world, like the Freerider (VI 5.13a) on El Cap, or great desert towers have heinous wide pitches guarding the summit,” says Honnold. “I wanted to find a way to make chimneys and wide cracks a little more mellow. Luckily I knew just the folks to talk to.” When Honnold once again came to BD for a solution, we got to work
Here at BD, we’ve always taken pride in providing protection when you need it most. So, when climbers like BD Athletes Alex Honnold and Babsi Zangerl, and even our own employees would come back from the Valley or desert with horrifying tales of un-protectible chimneys and the dangerous run-outs that ensued, we knew we had to provide a solution. Now, armed with a #21 Camalot on your rack, you can feel safe knowing you have what it takes to tame the monster.
