Crazy rock climbing by Dan Osman (RIP)

Unread post by Tomac » February 7th, 2011, 5:04 pm

This is some old fotage from the early 90s, even back then he was ahead of his time
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wy3SuhEQHVg he also started rope jumping http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EilwLq7w ... re=related unfortunately this lead to his death, he took weeks to rig the ropes on this jump, after filming he returned a few weeks later & decieded to try one more jump before dismantling the lines....the rope snapped.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You're making a scene.'

no disrespect to his memory.
but anyone free climbing a basically vertical face, that lets go with both hands and leaps to the next hold, has to have a death wish.
madness .
i thought the rule was contact with 3 places at all times.
