Those few rock climbers who are renowned for free soloing - climbing without a rope. Mortality rates are high for those playing the gravity game - Paul Preuss, Tobin Sorenson, Jimmy Jewell, Derek Hersey and John Bachar died soloing. Michael Reardon was swept away by a large wave, deep-water soloing. Dan Osman died rope jumping the Leaning Tower. Patrick Berhault fell unroped during a speed attempt of climbing all 82 Alps 4000ers.
