Climbing a 1,500ft cliff face is impressive enough but doing it without any safety equipment is taking extreme to a whole new level.

A trailer for a new video shows daredevil Alex Honnold fearlessly scaling the face of El Sendero Luminoso in Mexico.

The American free climber managed to make it to the top of the cliff face in only three hours and did so without wearing any safety harnesses.

Mr Honnold is known for conquering high peaks without the use of safety equipment but his latest climb could be his greatest yet.

‘I would stop at the occasional good foothold and shake it out, but for the most part I kept a very steady pace,’ he told Planet Mountain after his climb.

YouTube viewers were split in their assessment of Mr Honnold’s achievement, with some branding him a legend and others calling him an idiot for taking such extreme risks.
