Dean Potter – on the line, solo at Taft Point

Some say, Good for him pushing the limits! Some say they would rather be mediocre than dead. I have always been extremely moderate. What do you think? Has Dean gone too far?

From the article:

“ was a beautiful day in Yosemite. Dean had a high line set up there that he measured as somewhere between 99 to 100 feet. He had walked the line leashed a few times when I saw him untying from the tether. I figured he was just taking a break. Instead, he stepped up to the line and started walking it with confidence and determination. It’s hard to imagine what it must feel like walking across a rope with over a thousand feet of air below, but it was obvious to me that Dean was exactly where he was supposed to be…”

Quite a lively discussion in the article linked above about whether or not he’s crazy to do this.
