Alex Honnold
He's the guy that free soloed El Capitan as seen in the movie Free Solo.

He did something 'other level' , but his approach to it was very sane.

Since the movie won an academy award, Alex has been giving lots of talks. He's a geeky guy without guile. When he smiles, he looks like Alfred E. Newman.

He's involved in a charity and has been, long before the movie. He brings solar electric to villages in Africa that are dependent on kerosene lamps for light. 

He's one of my favorite humans.

You can hear him talk if you google his name. 

This amazing feat he did, climbing that rock without ropes, isn't the gist of it, in a way.
It's more about the approach to solving a problem.

I hope fame doesn't destroy the guy.
