Ironic how he died doing a controlled stunt that involved a rope, and not this crazy sh*t that involves no safty precaution wutsoever. Like how the Crocodile Hunter didn`t die from a crocodile but a fcking stingray... i mean WTF

What happens if he falls? Usually, people only climb with no rope when they are above a deep river or lake, as they can dive in for a softer landing. There`s no water here.

Wow, that`s impressive. But can he do that on a flat wall? :D

Btw, the actual time on that was 4:25, usually that`s mentioned at the end of the video, not sure why it wasn`t on this one. Lover`s Leap is over 400ft high, so that`s around 100ft straight up every minute.

Don`t think it`s fake, there are different angles because several different people filmed it - one from the base of the cliff, one from further away and another guy that rappelled down from the top of the cliff (you can actually see this person at 0:55).

I would imagine that if you climb the same rock enough times you would be able to climb it that quickly. Also, no rope...stupid...just like every gun owner will at some point have an accidental discharge...every horse rider will fall off...every rock climber will slip...no rope is dumb as hell...

it`s not hard to tell that this is fake. In some of the shots, he clearly just walks up the wall, nothing to hold on to. gravity would have done its job, and he would be dead. Either, it is filmed in a convinient angle, or he has a safety line or something like that.

Looks fake to me. You can see his safety line in some of the shots, but not in others.

"Y`know... this just came to me... but I wonder how much editing there was, considering all the camera angle changes. Like how`d they get the camera into the cliff-face to look back out at him. Or all the shots next to him on the cliff panning up. Unless there was a guy following him? Any ideas?

It`d be mad awesome if it`s real, but all the camera angle changes make it seem kind of fake. I`m not saying it`s impossible, just seems unlikely considering all the editing and angles and such..."

You don`t speed climb a cliff without out planning your route and slowly going over the steps first. notice how the cameras are conveniently placed at the exact spots he climbs by? thats because he (or someone else) put them there while he was planning his route. this is definitely legit. its Dan Osman ffs! the guys got bigger balls than most pro athletes i`d warrant.

so...how did he get back down?

That`s a good question, because it`s totally impossible for helicoptors to fly up there to get him.

"IDK maybe when he got up there he knew it was a mistake. I`m still trying to figure out how people get ice in water bottles."

Quite possibly the best come-back I have ever read!! LOL

At first I thought it was fake and and he was simply crawling on the ground while the camera was tilted at an angle.. but the direction the trees are growing proved me wrong.

lecaroz:
How can that be a woman?? Just because he has long hair, doesn`t mean that the person is a girl. Besides, at the end, he shouts in a pretty deep voice. Unless the person`s on steroids.

Otherwise, pretty amazing. I`m sure he must`ve climbed that face a million times to do it that fast.

Didn`t this guy die a while back?

EDIT: Yes he did. Wiki: "He died on November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope failed while performing a "controlled free-fall" jump from the Leaning Tower rock formation in Yosemite National Park. The failure was investigated by the National Park Service with assistance from Chris Harmston, Quality Assurance Manager at Black Diamond Equipment. Harmston concluded that a change in jump site angle probably caused the ropes to cross and entangle, leading to the rope cutting by melting.[2] Miles Daisher, who was with Osman when he made the jump, stated that the ropes used in his fatal jump had been exposed to inclement weather - including rain and snow - for more than a month before the fatal jump, but that the same ropes were used for several shorter jumps on the previous and same day, this was said to be his last jump before he retired."

i would think he would have done a slow run first just to find out where everything is, but if hes just winging it then thats pretty bad ass.
