How to overcome fear with the legendary Free Solo climber and Oscar winner

As the saying goes, there’s nothing to fear but fear itself. In this episode, free solo climber Honnold, the man who scaled a 3000 foot vertical cliff without ropes, discusses fear and how to overcome it. His conquering of the awe inspiring El Capitan in America has been described as ‘one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, ever’ – it was so impressive, they made an Oscar winning film about it called Free Solo. As Honnold recalls his legendary climb, he shares the importance of preparation and visualisation and tells why incremental practice can be used to overcome just about any fear, including social anxiety and fear of public speaking.
