19. Free Solo

I just watched Dawn Wall and Free Solo. Dawn Wall was inspirational. Free Solo left me scratching my head. Climbing without ropes is just silly. It doesnít change the aesthetic of climbing, but just leaves you dead if youíre human and make a mistake. Ice climbing is another sport I just donít get. I lost a friend years ago in an ice climbing accident. He was a skilled mountaineer who summited Everest multiple times and worked as a professional ski patroller at a big CO resort. It really sucked. He left behind a wife and young infant. Iím all about Adrenalin sports, but there are some risks that neednít be taken.
