What about deep water soloing at lake powel? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.8.151.171 (talk) 00:28, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Origins of psicobloc[edit]

Hi, just a note on the origins of psicobloc. I have read in a spanish magazine that psicobloc was already practiced in Mallorca(by very few people, but well-known) in the 70s. You have the link here [1] you will see that in the bottom of the page there is a section on History and there you can read "anos 70" which means in the 70s.

Is psicobloc a name for Deep Water Soloing that gets used often? I don't know much about DWS but it wasn't a term I'd heard yet. It seems a little bit like a word that Spanish speakers or people who climbed in Spanish areas might use. Perhaps it should be mentioned only in the main body of article like water bouldering is mentioned, rather than right up at the top which to this readers implies is very common and I just hadn't learnt it yet? An English language citation would be better, and would help show it really is commonly used in English and not just a borrowed word. -- Horkana (talk) 20:37, 1 March 2009 (UTC)


Just to tell you all my son Liam Day died from deep water soloing this week.

The coroner told us if you fall into the deep cold water off the coast of dorset, England,you only have two minutes to get out of the water before you fall unconscious with hypothermia. Even the strongest of swimmers wouldn't be able to get out as there muscles seize up due to the cold. Liams mum.CA102JN (talk) 15:30, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
