    Re: National Geographic Channel - Free Solo

    I missed this thread from March. I've seen both Free Solo and Meru, plus Mountain and several others...my kind of outdoors documentaries.

    Free Solo, for people who haven't seen it, I too highly recommend it, even if you're not into climbing of any sort.

    You’ve inspired me, Bob. I’m actually in the Climbing Gym right now. Just did a decent overhanging route.

    Re: National Geographic Channel - Free Solo

    I couldn't even make it through the trailer. The pucker factor was overwhelming for me.
    Experiencing heights or viewing them never bothered me until i reached my 40's. Now in my mid 60's it hasn't gone away.

    I clearly remember when I realized something inside me had changed. My wife and I were hiking in either Zion or Yosemite NP. We were on a rock trail a couple of feet wide with a vertical face on my left and a 800-1000' drop to my right. There was even a chain on the wall in places to hang on to. My wife was ahead of me and the trail descended in an arc and she disappeared on the trail. I remember so clearly I just stood there staring unable to take a step.
    After a few minutes my wife's head appeared coming back up the trail and said are you coming. I starred at her and said, nope, i'll wait here if you want to go farther.
    It was a very strange feeling. I don't think it was especially dangerous but something about seeing her disappear and the drop-off on the right shut down something in my brain.

    I am respectful and amazed at those of you that climb.

    Maybe a couple of stiff drinks and I will give the video a try again.

    I watched Meru last night. Another awesome and intense movie. I can't imagine hanging off the side if a mountain in a tiny tent for 4 days in a storm. Thanks for that rec!
