    My amazement went down a little when I found out that they climb with ropes a few dozen times first before cameras are rolling to scope out their path. I guess that makes sense because if they weren`t certain, they`d be dead.

    I was curious how many of these climbers are still alive.
    Two have died while climbing: Dan Osman and John Bachar

    Wow. Surprised to see a snippet of one of them taking the final plunge there. I also know that Dan Osman (shown first) died in a non-free-solo but also ill-advised stunt.

    carmium - that wasn`t the final plunge. He had a chute, he`s still alive. They`re all in-feckin-sane, but most are still alive.

    ferdyfred: The idea of a chute had crossed my mind, but then I said "What wussy free soloist wears a parachute?!" 8-)
