Look at this insane guy defying death by speed climbing a mountain, no strings attached. Extreme video! (For the most extreme videos daily - http://oracleXtreme.blogspot.com )
Dan Osman was criticized by many as being careless and irresponsible but Osman still remains a legend in the world of Speed-Soloing.
A clip of Dan Osman as he polishes off a free-soloing climb (no gear/equipment) up a vertical face. He died on November 23, 1998 attempting a "rope jumping" (free fall) stunt at Yosemite National Park. It was a 1000 foot drop, but the rope failed him. It was supposed to be his last rope jump before retiring. More info available at wikipedia.
