News from is that Dave Turner summited yesterday after spending 34 days on the wall solo. Climbing was up to A4+. It will take him another couple of days to get down and then about a week to ferry out his loads...

Well done!!

I can't imagine what you learn about yourself, or where you go mentally to be alone for 40 days and nights, tinkering with climbings most focused form of minutia...sounds biblical...laughing. A hearty adventure in a great wasteland.

The thread on ST is a really great description by Dave as well as a recent response by Schneider and others. I hope the mags are picking this one up. Alpinist?
