Article: Alex Honnold free solos two big wall classics in a day
I agree with Brian. I don't think it is accurate to say he soloed two big walls in a day with a couple of grade IVs. I would say that he free-soloed two very difficult grade IVs in a day. Again, I agree, huge accomplishment.

Free Soloing any two grade V or higher routes in a day would be considered 'two big walls in a day.' Anybody know if it's been down yet? There are obviously only a couple places in the world where one could pull that off..

Article: Osprey Talon 33 Editorial Review
I've had this pack for a few weeks now. I've taken it on a solo of Keyhole Ridge in August, it performed great. I hauled it on Moonlight Buttress. I wouldn't recommend doing that, but it did hold up fine. It's been a good pack for me recently.
