40 Ft. Ground Fall Video Soloing

Postby Winter8000m » Sat Jun 16, 2012 2:27 pm

Recently saw this on MP and thought I'd share it on 14ers for some excitement at the desk for you all.

Real or Fake?


Before you all jump on conclusion. He did go to the hospital for a broke ankle. He had many friends visit him treating him as a true hero. Before I jump on the situation, I'll just say, glad he didn't die.

YIKES :shock: :shock:

I saw this on MP as well, despite the flame fest over there it seemed real enough to me.

Still don't understand soloing though...
