A climbing solo (as you would expect) is a route climbed alone. People who solo say that it is the free-est form of climbing with no interruptions to place gear, no hampering ropes; just climber and rock.

It is of course, also the most dangerous!

Ben was confident that this route was within his capability and he went up it with ease.


  1. He certainly made short work of that and, in the process, made it look as though anyone could do it...although I know that's not true! It's just that he's so confident and sure-footed he makes it LOOK easy!

  2. Excellent video! My, he is fast!

  3. Very good - but I still think he would have been quicker taking the lift.
