Christian invents "free-solo climbing"

Post by DeSade4 » Fri, 01 Mar 1996 04:00:00

In the latest Outdoor Action (usually a pretty fine mag for beginner info
etc) it says refering to a climbing feature, "...and some solo climbing
with Christian Griffith, who is responsible for introducing this aspect of
the sport into the US."
Ha!  Christian was still shittin' his crib when guys like John Long and
Bachar were soloing what was at that time, the upper limits of
freeclimbing.  I just hope this is media exuberance on the part of Outdoor
Action, and not Christian laying claim to something in which he is only a
minor player.
