"No ropes, no regrets" apparently this was his quote, as he did eventually die from the rock.

Micheal Reardon, some other famous free climber just bit the dust too. For some reason I just can't get worked up when these adrenalin junkies' numbers come up. Good on them for living their lives to the fullest just the way they wanted, but if I were to blow my brains out playing Russian roulette no one would go on about what a tragedy it was.

I'm inclined to agree. Moto GP & Formula One racers are all andrenaline junkies too, yet they still employ all available safety eqiptment. Helmets, leathers, etc. If you reach a point when you know you're human and not infallible, yet refuse to use anchors and rope, you know the clock is ticking. Fine line between brains and bravado.

he actually didn't die from free-solo climbing, it was his from a controlled free fall jump as you see near the end. the friction of the rope and heighth of the jump was what killed him. this guy was an excellent climber, and all of his free solo's were completely mapped out and he had a lot of practice on them before hand.

WTF? I got bored so I fast forwarded, and it started playing with him falling. I remember it said "no ropes", so I figured my timing was perfect to see him fall to his death. Then it looks like a rope snapped him back. This is bullshit.

Michael Reardon, a world renowned Southern California free solo rock climber who scaled towering cliff faces without a rope, was presumed dead after a rogue wave swept him into the sea Friday on an island off the southwest coast of Ireland.

Adrenaline has nothing to do with it. It's something you have no fear of and you don't except to die from BUT you usually do. That's why I continualy say to all of you " Stay In School "
