John Bachar and Free Soloing

by Tom Markiewicz on August 12, 2009

The Wall Street Journal has an article on John Bachar and free soloing.

He was one of the first climbers to train for the sport like he was an Olympic athlete. Bachar was renowned not only for his physical prowess but even more for his mental mastery, his ability to put fear at bay and push the limits of the possible. In Yosemite he created an ­extremely bold route called Bachar-Yerian, which he climbed with a rope but with protection so sparse that any mistake would have likely been his last.
