Few rock climbers are renowned for their practice of 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 free soloing. Dan Osman died rope jumping the Leaning Tower in Yosemite National Park. Patrick Berhault fell unroped during a speed attempt of climbing all 82 Alps 4000ers. Michael Reardon was swept away by a large wave, deep-water soloing in Ireland. Dean Potter died in a wingsuit accident in Yosemite National Park.
