Climber scales 1,600-ft. rock wall without ropes

"60 Minutes" cameras follow free-solo climber Alex Honnold as he scales a 1,600-ft. canyon wall using only his hands and feet

"60 Minutes" cameras capture a feat never documented before: viewers will see Alex Honnold scale a 1,600-ft. rock wall using nothing more than his hands and feet.

Cameras strategically placed along a sheer rock wall in Yosemite National Park put viewers right beside Honnold as he makes his free-solo climb of Sentinel, a feat never done before.

Lara Logan interviews Honnold about his climbing and the sport he has mastered at the age of 26 in a segment to be broadcast on "60 Minutes," Sunday, Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
