Rainy day in Portland today. Just waiting for my flight to Thailand tomorrow, so here’s a photo of me rope soloing on the Muir Wall on El Cap from a few years back. This photo is from the Silverfish Corner, which is something like pitch 14 or 15.
Aid soloing is fun, scary, exhausting, stressful, satisfying, engaging, and more than a bit masochistic. If intensity of experience is what you’re looking for, aid soloing is waaaaay up there.
