Alex Honnold, known as Alex “no big deal,” to his friends, is the best professional athlete that you have never heard of.  He is a revolutionary in his sport.  He has accomplished tasks that make your palms sweat just hearing about, and your pulse race when you watch.  This video is from a 60 Minutes story in 2011.
