It must be something in the DNA of free soloists that makes them all unassuming, humble guys who you'd struggle to pick out of a crowd. Canadian trad climber and soloist Will Stanhope is no different. Hailing from British Columbia, Canada, Will has climbed all over the globe, relentlessly probing the extent of his exceptional talent with and without a rope. In this video, Will is in Joshua Tree and although he may have brought a partner in the form of Matt Segal, Will spends most of his time climbing by himself, regularly cranking out several routes before breakfast. Inspired by classic footage of Stonemaster John Bachar, Will solos a number of the area's super-classics before roping up to take on the laser-cut splitter 'Asteroid Crack' (5.13).

me neither. Love how they include the part about him getting scared to make the jump. Super cool to see that he's human and he gets freaked out just like anyone. Well, maybe slightly less than everyone.
