Dan Osman - Great American Extreme Rock Climber


Dan Osman (February 11, 1963 – November 23, 1998) is one of the great Japanese-American Extreme Rock Climber who has several World Guinness Records. He was known for his daredevil moves on his dangerous sports of “free-soloing” (rock climbing without ropes or other safety gear) and “rope jumping” (falling several hundred feet from a cliff then being caught by a safety rope) over 1000 feet/300 meters.







Free Solo Speed Climbing

At the age of 35 years old, he died after his rope failed while performing a “controlled free-fall” jump from the Leaning Tower rock formation in Yosemite National Park.

  1. Tried rock climbing once without any prior experience even on a regular wall. It was scary, but forgot all about that when I was already climbing. Hehe. Do you go rock climbing too? There are a bunch of PTB peeps who want to try it out. :)

  4. Michael's Belay Glasses: http://belayglass.blogspot.com/ Don't crane your neck while belaying. Wear these glasses and look forward to gaze upward saving on neck strain. They allow the belayer to more fully concentrate their attention to the task at hand, especially on long, protracted sessions. They accomplish this at roughly a 1/4 of the cost of the other product on the market, putting this easier into the average climbers budget.

  6. Hey Guys, My partner is a very good rock climber, so I have to do a lot of belaying. I was hurting my neck while belaying for long hours. So I bought Mike's Belay Glasses from http://www.belayglass.com/ I wear these glasses and look forward to gaze upward saving on neck strain. They allow me to concentrate their attention to the task at hand, especially on long, protracted climb sessions. These glasses are cheap, roughly 1/4th the cost of the other belay glasses in the market. Check it out.
