Absolutely unbelievable! Unfortunately, Dan Osman who is shown successfully free soloing in this video, died tragically at a later date when his rope failed during a controlled free fall jump. As impressive as the skill he demonstrates is, I can’t help but consider Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” The life we’ve been given by our Creator is not to be dealt with trivially.
