    Saw an article in Outside Magazine about this guy last year: http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/climbing/rock-climbing/No-Strings-Attached.html?page=all

    He is just nuts! A lot of the other climbers don’t like the risks he takes saying it’s just a matter of time before the worst case scenario happens to him. Got to say he’s a bit daft and I don’t know how he carries that giant set up the wall, but it sure is entertaining!

    2000ft? I thought Half Dome is 5000ft from the Yosemite Valley floor.
