Feelin’ Free Rider

GD Star Rating


Tommy Caldwell, writing for La Sportiva about a trip to Switzerland that had him questioning the mantra that “Sport Climbing is Neither”:

Yeah, sport climbing is the safe type of climbing… right. That is what I was telling myself as I looked down and saw my rope hanging free for thirty feet then gently arcing towards my last bolt more than 40 feet away. I looked up… no more bolts in sight and no possible place for gear either.

If I fall here I am looking at a 100-foot fall that will leave me hanging 40 feet below my belayer.

But it’s a free fall. I should be all right…maybe.
