Michael Muller photographs fearless climber Alex Honnold for Outside magazine cover story. Plus: behind-the-scenes video

Adventure athlete Alex Honnold, the biggest name in the sport of climbing, is planning to scale a skyscraper on live TV—and not just any skyscraper but the world’s second-tallest building. So he was a natural for Outside’s “Disrupters Issue,” which celebrates “the bold men and women” who have shaken up our world.

Michael Muller photographed Honnold for the story, including a nifty tribute to the classic “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper” photo of workers taking a break from construction on the RCA building back in 1932. Here’s a look, along with a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, featuring footage by climber and photographer Jimmy Chin, whom Michael photographed last year for the cover of a special issue of Outside.
