Alex Honnold, Mark Synnott, and Jimmy Chin are considered a dream team to climbers worldwide. Join them on their latest adventure scaling the rugged seaside cliffs of Oman, an Arab state near the Persian Gulf. For a forthcoming National Geographic story, the three headed for the remote Musandam Peninsula, accessible only by sea. They grappled with sheer limestone cliffs towering over deep ocean and perfected their deep-water solo climbing followed by high diving off the rockface. Hear about it from Alex, Mark, and Jimmy themselves, and enjoy Jimmy’s awe-inspiring images and video.

Read an interview with Alex Honnold on Jimmy Chin’s website.
