Right on. The dude is reckless and just showing off. Total BS. I would never climb with anyone that thinks being super solid and running it way out is cool. It's not people. Someone is going to get hurt or worse! I sure hope that belayer is using a tiblock or something.
Jesus. Why does everybody have to get angry? I was just making an observation. Kudos to the man for free soloing Astroman a lot. He could still make a mistake and die. As for everyone else, chill out for crying out loud, it doesn't matter.
It's quite a run out but the truth is the climbing is rock solid to that point. The stem is the rest before the real business begins. I always tried to get a rest there before venturing off into a couple of inch and a quarter moves then fall into the lay back for ten or fifteen feet. I did however always plug a couple of 2.5" friends in that lower section!
Yeah, and he is an older guy too. What if he strokes out or has a seizure or something?? What then? The old guy will probably die and the belayer will need a rescue. Bad deal all the way around. PUT IN SOME PRO MAN!!!
