I haven't found the segment of the CBS 60 minutes broadcast yet where Alex describes how he suppresses the fear of falling.  I don't think he has the fear. He describes how in climbing he finds himself in cool positions like in mid air high up & how awesome it is.  I suspect he is totally present to NOW. He is confident in his abilities & experience & that just as an inkling of a lack or a fear he automatically is able to focus on the task now at hand & the coolness of the moment.  It's all positive; what fear there is no fear!
