WOW.

Curious, is there any solo history to the Freeblast?

Everyone assumed the 1st route soloed would be Freerider and if it was going to be done it would be him. Wow, how do you top that ?

To paraphrase Supertopo's Freerider beta page:
Free Rider is currently the easiest and most popular way to say proudly "I have free soloed El Capitan"

Considering that he will be, in a way, the international face of climbing, I'm happy to hear that he isn't a dick.

Wow,

Wasn't there a tread where people were predicting who would do it and when
it would happen.

Tried searching for it but could not find it.


Edit: Thanks, Looks Easy From Here.
Rock!...oopsie.

Somehow simultaneously "inconceivable" and "inevitable" - but both words fail.

Amazing. I'm having trouble getting my head around this. Completely spectacular. Caldwell called it, "the moon landing of rock climbing." Gotta agree.
