Alex Honnold was awesome and took some time to chat with me between his book-talk and signing in Portsmouth, NH last Tuesday. The full interview will be up next week, but here's an overview and some behind the scenes of Alex's first book talk.

A buddy of mine texted me a photo of him meeting Alex (in an arm wrestling pose).

Pretty cool. I hope he does well with the book.

Liz-

Great post! I think I've seen your blog before. Very nice scoop on an historic moment in time. Alex's first ever slide show and first book signing! So cool! And to think, he did his first book with David Roberts of all people. Amazing.

Is this true??? --> "It was Alex Honnold’s first visit to New Hampshire. "

Thank you! And a cool historic moment as well. Though it was sad to hear about David Robert's illness.
It was indeed Alex's first ever visit to New Hampshire. He asked me what state Rumney was in and where we were in the state so he could orient himself. Unfortunately he was only here for a day didn't get to sample any rock, but I tried to convince him to make a trip back at some point.
