Climbing without any ropes or protection. Obviously this is a very dangerous way to climb as a mistake made high up could be your last. To many, free soloing is the ultimate way to climb, free from the bounds of a rope, harness and protection and many experienced climbers talk of the intense focus it gives them.
Free soloing is not for everyone and certainly not for anyone who is new to climbing. As with any type of climbing, common sense and a firm understanding of the risks that are about to be undertaken is required. this is never more true than when free soloing. It’s worth remembering that many experienced climbers have sadly died whilst free soloing.
