Reply Stephen 1982 says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am I don't always stand on the side of a cliff but when I do I'm definitely not chill about it. Reply Gax says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am I guess the rope is here so we don't loose the body if he falls Reply Jason Omar says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am And these are special breed of human lol cause I’m sitting on hella warm muddbutt Reply Rob C says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am So the guy in green is trying to summit the rock face as fast as possible? Is it a world record? Reply rockofullr says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am I'd be kinda pissed if I was the dudes on the ledge. If Brad had fallen with that huge run out that rope would have pulled them off the ledge. Be as risky with your own life as you like. Don't involve others who didn't sign up. Reply ball day says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am Holy shit if he falls hes straight up dead Reply JustAMessenger says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am Uh what was the point of his rope?… might as well free solo it Reply Mike beats tsb says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am What the point in havin a rope if he climbing that much further away from where he's clipped it in.? Falling from there ain't gonna be no fun for noone. . Spesh the bystander on the ledge who he'd take with him! Careless mofo. . I appreciate he's going for a record but endangering others ain't part o the game ain't worth it either ImPo ! 👎 Reply sdriza says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am …and I feel, "fast" when we're switching leads… Reply mosin9105 says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am I think climbers are a different species. Reply Gerard Guitarist says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am That'd be a nasty tumble with all that rope out… Reply Jim Fuge says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am Being old school I've mixed feelings about this. And yes I've free soloed some big walls,…little too,..but 5.9 max. Short version is ,..it's their climb they do it their way. Thing is everyone gets to climb the thing that's in front of them. It really is strange to have seen the range that climbing has become. I remember when doing a 5.10 was a big deal! haha,..fun video none the less. Reply Ed McCaffrey says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am Alex Honnold climbed El Cap by himself, without ropes, in less than 4 hours. Free solo, the single greatest climb, or athletic achievement in history. No question, no argument, period. Reply Gregory Parrott says: May 27, 2019 at 3:29 am The title should list their last names – Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds. (2:41 through 4:06 +) Well, so much for the rope serving any real purpose. Question: When simul-climbing, the lead climber must either moderate his pace based on rope tension from the trailing climber or the trailing climber MUST keep pace to ensure there is slack for the lead climber to press on at full speed. Relying on voice alone is doubtful, so how do they synchronize their climbing? Also, do they use a 70 meter rope or even longer?
