I just came back from the Valley, and ran into both Honnold and Tommy Caldwell. There both very personable and nice guys.
I climbed a whole day with Rob Pizm, who is a good friend of Honnold.
I was very impressed with Pizm, who is a weekend warrior, being a full time teacher and family man.
There are so many incredible climbers out West. Pizm did the Rostrum on our last day, and he described it as "mellow".
Since he has done 5.13+ trad. 1st ascents, I can understand how he would find the Rostrum "mellow".
These guys are amazing!
