What Is On the Edge with Alex Honnold About?
While filming the upcoming original series from National Geographic for Disney+, ON THE EDGE WITH ALEX HONNOLD (WT), world-class climbers Alex Honnold ("Free Solo") and Hazel Findlay made the first-known ascent of Ingmikortilaq, one of Earth's tallest unclimbed natural monoliths. The cliff, composed of 3-million-year-old granite and gneiss, rises 3,750 feet out of a remote peninsula jutting into a fjord on Greenland's eastern coast. The team began the climb from a dinghy at the base of the formation and camped out on what is known as a "shiver bivvy" - overnighting in their sleeping bags safely clipped in as they progressed up the face. Honnold and Findlay were able to free-climb the entire route of the 3-million-year-old rock. For the last 150 feet of the climb, they were able to disconnect from their ropes and walk safely to the summit.
In the lead-up to Ingmikortilaq (pronounced Ing-mick-ort-till-lack), which in Greenlandic means “the separate one,” the team was joined by Dr. Heïdi Sevestre, a glaciologist working with the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program, and Adam Kjeldsen, a Greenlandic guide, to complete what might be the first true crossing of the critical Renland ice cap from the Pool Wall. As they traversed the Renland ice cap, Sevestre and team dragged a special radar that took real-time measurements of the depth and density of the snow and ice below them.
WHEN: After a 5-day climb battling icy weather conditions, Honnold and Findlay successfully summited the granite-gneiss rock face on Tuesday, Aug. 16.
WHERE: Sitting at ground zero of the climate crisis, Ingmikortilaq, a 3-million-year-old gneiss-granite monolith, rises directly out of the Nordvestfjord in the Scoresby Sound region of eastern Greenland. It ranks among the tallest big walls ever climbed and heretofore stood as perhaps one of the biggest unclimbed rock faces in the world.
