On the 16th of January 2014 Alex Honnold soloed the slabby El Sindero Luminoso (grade 28) in El Potrero Chico, Mexico taking 3 hours to reach the summit.  The route has 190 bolts (non of which Alex clipped).

Alex together with Cedar Wright went and cleaned the handholds on the route before the ascent.  The solo went smooth and Alex is off to Patagonia with Tommy Caldwell in a couple of days to see what ice climbing is all about!
