DEAN POTTER

Dean Potter is an incredible person. A solo climber, a climber, a climber, a base jumper, a highliner, as well as a baseball player. This person is known to everyone who is keen on extreme sports.

Childhood.

Born in the USA. He began to climb as a child. Slackline tried at a fairly young age (in 2003). He devoted the whole of 2003 to base jumping. His father served in the army and therefore Dean and his friend climbed into the closed territory for the military. He did not start applying insurance right away; at first he was without it. It was made from improvised materials. Not far from their house was a rock, on which he constantly went. The boy carefully concealed his hobbies from his parents. Dean’s situation with the university was not so good, and after 3 semesters he left him and devoted his life to climbing.

He is the same as everyone. Continue reading

Risky fun for the sake of

Between us, to jump from a bridge 100 meters high, it’s not necessary to have great abilities. There is enough desire to experience mortal fear. You will also need a long elastic rope that needs to be tied to the legs, and – hurray! Head into the abyss. Just like James Bond.

In Jamaica, for example, such a jump costs only $ 20. Where there are no high bridges, the tops of cliffs hanging over the sea, or gigantic trees, are used. As a last resort, they might even throw you off a helicopter – if you agree to pay well. Continue reading

Vertical dancing

Today in France there are more than a dozen of them – single climbers, whose ascents are akin to solo performances of dancers. And there is nothing surprising in the fact that these people are called “soloists”, but they are served by the sheer cliffs, reaching a height of more than half a kilometer …

And the beginning of such solo performances a little more than a dozen years ago was laid by the young French rock climber Patrick Edlenge, who became the hero of the world-famous documentary thriller Life at Your Fingertips (excerpts from this film the Russian viewer could see in the eighties in the television program Travelers Club )

What made the twenty-three-year-old Patrick Edlenge at one time abandon the traditional climbing techniques with the usual safety equipment and do what one cannot look at without a shudder — single ascent to the rocks, and even without any insurance at all? Continue reading
