I asked John about this a couple of years ago. A solo was never done much less considered. Oct 25, 2015
Yeah. This is just photographic evidence that Johnny "worked" the route (several times) with a top rope before he got us to go try the thing as a FFA. ……never told any of us about the pre-inspections. ;-) Surprisingly, four of us got this dyno on the first tries.

No one in their right mind would EVER consider doing this as a "free solo"! Oct 24, 2015
