Free Soloing

Definition of a Climbing Word


Free Soloing

Free soloing is the dangerous act of free climbing a rock face alone, without a rope, gear, or any other protection from the dire effects of gravity. Despite its intimations of glory, free soloing is not recommended since the consequences of a fall are usually death or at least disfigurement.
