Alex Honnold Rappels Into a Ravine | Running Wild With Bear Grylls

    Alex Honnold finds himself high up in the Swiss Alps, though the climber is not new to extreme heights. What are your thoughts on his adventure with Bear Grylls?

  • Jonathan Lee on May 12, 2021

    Bear did all this to get Alex's socks, what a cheeky fellow!

  • Chris Church on May 12, 2021

    now Bear should go free solo with alex

  • cm m on May 12, 2021

    this is nothing for Alex.

  • David Cooke on May 13, 2021

    I like how they act like this wasn't something they planned for days.

  • Tomas Nahlik on May 18, 2021

    I would recommend watching
    Justin Wallace making fun of this video, there's so much wrong going on. They aren't counter balancing each other, after the cut the rope is tied to carabiners, that means they have no chance recovering the rope from the bottom, so it's actually not even simul repel and because they both use two strands they need 2 x 600 foot rope, which they would have to leave behnd. Also after cut, the rope is protected more than just by the socks. Rope could have go under the wires to prevent rubbing, etc. Not really sure how could Alex say yes to this.

  • Why didn't they anchor off the foot wire so it didn't rub 😒

  • DelphiPascal on May 27, 2021

    If I was planning a show to make Alex uncomfortable it would have nothing to do with ropes/mountaineering

  • f youtubecensorship on May 30, 2021

    for sure you're not actually simulrepelling

  • Hike1020 on May 31, 2021

    the only time the guest is guiding the guide

  • T K on June 2, 2021

    Yeah, so that wasn't a "counterbalance repel". There was no reason to use Alex's socks as padding when they could have run the rope down the middle of the bridge. You're supposed to tie a knot at the end of the rope when repelling. Thankfully they tied into the carabiners. I'm not sure why they still went at the same time but it was probably because some executive thought it would look cooler. So much wrong in such a short video and Alex just smiles the whole time, Love his attitude! I guess the film crew had to go back up to retrieve the ropes and Alex's socks.

    If Bear Grylls really climbed Everest that alone shows how mentally strong he is.

  • P on June 4, 2021

    Two legends.

  • Meow Milev on June 10, 2021

    I wonder did free solo dump her useless girlfriend yet?

  • JBOM9000 on June 15, 2021

    12 seconds in and I’m already thinking… how do these two not have a show together

  • Potato Poachers on June 16, 2021

    anyone know where this is?

  • Dipsikha Dutta on June 20, 2021

    Just got to know that apart from being an exceptionally awesome climber he's also a good actor! 🙂

  • eraserhead on June 20, 2021

    these two together is EPIC😂

  • Jonathan Lloyd on June 23, 2021

    Gotta love the Bear.

  • sarangcemut on June 26, 2021

    That Alex Honnold guy doesn’t seem to be scared of height. He should try making a living climbing rocks

  • Adam K on June 27, 2021

    After they cut this scene, Alex free climbed back up to get his socks 😂

  • pek cam kee on July 5, 2021

    this bear guy trying too much to impress everyone is the funniest thing i see today.

  • Christian Hansen on July 5, 2021

    You could tell how stupid Alex thought this was

  • Sercan Kantar on August 27, 2021

    Actually they’ve left so much equipment there. At least 2 carabiners, 2 ropes, Alex’s socks.
    I didn’t see the whole episode but i wonder how should they get the equipment back from there as long as the ropes had both a figure 8 knot at the top.
    Also if they would’ve just use both ropes linked together by a knot they could rappel one by one, with no friction and they could also take the rope back (nor to say they could also make this without the use of carabiners)

  • Dave on August 27, 2021

    If Bear fell and died, Alex's pulse would not go above 40.

  • Shubham Bhardwaj on September 6, 2021

    If I train for several months I think I can watch this.

  • Micah Brown on October 14, 2021

    now that would be some good mates to go for beers with

  • Andres Utrillas Blanco on October 17, 2021

    I wonder why they didn't abandon two carabiners and had a proper and safe rappel.

  • Henrik on October 17, 2021

    They could have used a technique where they didn't lose the rope. They obviously had enough rope to do a traverse belay.

  • Dylan Toast on November 14, 2021

    Counterbalanced, both of them doubled up on 2 fixed ropes, they’re trying too hard

  • Aldy LA on December 4, 2021

    this looks boring for honnold🤣

  • charles bromberick on December 8, 2021

    Two of my favorite adventurers.
