I'm pretty sure there have only been three people who have done NIAD solos, Potter, Schneider, and Florine. Youngest is Potter.

Ok so Potter is youngest to solo The Nose in a day.

What about the youngest to ever solo a route on El Cap and the youngest to solo The Nose?

honnold, to my knowledge, has not soloed any el cap routes, roped or otherwise.

he has, however, crushed the Salathe speed record for both aid and free ascents; as well as the record for doing two el cap routes (Salathe and Nose) in a day.
