"Alex Honnold and Will Stanhope made the third free ascent of Half Dome's notoriously run out Southern Belle (5.12d) on November 1. The pair had worked out the first five pitches the week before and then started at 5 a.m., going for the one-day send. According to James Lucas, who talked to the climbers, "On one pitch a knob that Honnold had slung came off as he climbed 10 feet above it on 5.10 terrain. He was looking at a 120-foot fall if he didn't make it to the next bolt." The climbers were so dehydrated when they topped out that they drank out of puddles on the summit."
