Free Solo

Watched this movie last night.  It is about a free solo accent of El Capitan.  That guy is complete and total nuts.  I could hardly watch it with the camera angles and the sketchy moves the guy was making with no ropes and harnesses.  It won the Oscar for best doc.  Good doc. but don’t watch it if you are scared of heights.
Apparently free thought is punished, and conformity is required, while peckerless cowards run the show.

ECHO...ECHO....echo...

Ah......One savors the hypocrisy!

Karma.........It’s a bitch.

    Watched the show, Honnold is a great climber, he did it in 4 hours, the first climbers to do it was in the 50s and it took them 4 or 5 days.

    No doubt he is a great climber.  He will also die one day as so many free soloist have before him.  One brittle piece of rock, one tiny slip.
