Monuments are often built as a reminder of the impact of one person’s life. For some though, a monument just isn’t enough. Todd Skinner, for instance, doesn’t really need anyone to build a monument in his honor when Alex Honnold is risking his life in honor of Skinner’s legacy.
Honnold is attempting to complete Skinner’s dream of making a new route up Yosemite’s Leaning Tower, which is graded a 5.14/5.15. Honnold’s respect for Skinner has resulted in his adoption of Skinner’s vision. Now he begins a journey hoping to complete the vision for both of them.
