Some of the bravest, most passionate and craziest people in the world imho...

But it is an awe inspiring ability to me...

It's a very healthy hobby...these people are far less likely tthan most to die of cancer or heart disease.

I love rock climbing and think these climbers are amazing but I have a hard time celebrating free solo climbs as there have been way to many deaths caused from free soloers. It just doesn't make sense to me.

I like bouldering. It's a lot like free soloing, but you're much less likely to die if (when) you fall.

I've done that a little bit, a bit busy with other things now to do it. Smile
