Personally I have zero respect for these people!!

Yeah great..they can climb a cliff face without a rope, I put them in the same catagory as people who jump in front of trains....one day someone will have to scrape their body off of something solid!!!

Im sure theyre family and friends sleep really well at night...just waiting for that phone call.

Sorry...just my opinion.... :?

Do you think the same every time somebody walks down the path, drives a car or rides a bike.
All three are accidents waiting to happen and kill people everyday.

Riding 20 year old bikes that have fatigue people cannot see should be put in a similar danger category to the climber

If you can give me the odds of him dying and the odds of my example i'll believe you. Else it's all just make believe and opinions.


Oh and probably things like walking up Everest or insert many other mountains here, skydiving and say free diving.

Still he's probably statistically more likely to dye in a car incident, stroke or cancer.
