Did you click on the the videos yet? (Here's another short one from Squarespace if time is of an essence). Every single time I watch his videos, the palm of my hands and feet become so sweaty from anxiousness. Even after watching the same videos over and over again and knowing Alex won't slip and fall, I still feel nervous every time. Just imagining him alone up there without any ropes, climbing a wall like spiderman is completely surreal and unimaginable to me (and to most regular joes I'm sure). A stunt you think someone will only pull off once in their life is being done more than once by these courageous climbers. It takes a lot of courage. No one can mess with a guy that has the guts to do this.
He says sometimes he feels fear but I just can't see it...
A bit later, when I saw his hand in the back of a fan's back and notice their ginormousity and knowing that his hands are his life-line in his death defying solo climbs, I just had to touch them. Something came over me to just grab his hand and told him I need to take a picture of me shaking his hand. I thought I was being weird but he seemed unphased and commented that my hand is in fact tiny compared to his! I shook his hand and Dave managed to snap a picture of me gushing over his hand. That's this picture below.

I missed most of the Q&A session because I had to catch Russell Peter's 'Almost Famous' show at Madison Square Garden happening the same night! I'm glad I made it to both though but barely!
Here's one last pic for inspiration...You see what I'm talking about??
