Hans Flourine discusses the limits of the human body, and how he has been able to surpass them over and over again. 

Hans Florine is a speed climber, professional speaker, author, and thought leader in speed and efficiency. Hans has repeatedly set and broken one of the most coveted speed records in the world, including the Nose of El Capitan, a 2,900-foot monolith in Yosemite Valley. In 2012, Hans, alongside climbing partner Alex Honnold, took the record again in 2 hours and 23 minutes, lowering the previous record by a full 13 minutes.
