Hey Joe! Glad to see these shots come out clean! After wailing away on a 10d, Tim steps in to boulder Social Outcast - 12b. He walked up it in about 2 min. This was amazing to watch!

Comments for all (except the soloist in question) to consider, read them here -

This could be said about anyone who solos. Though I would never climb in this manner, watching someone who has the ability to walk up a climb that many struggle on is amazing. Yes, a fall would kill you, but so will a drunk driver as you come home from the store.

+1. Tim is more likely to be killed in a car accident that is someone else's fault than by soloing this route.

Didn't mean to rehash a controversial topic, just wanted to show some impressive climbing. But since we are on it; I think the difficulty of climbs he solos changes things a bit in regards to influencing other climbers. Nobody who does not realize soloing is dangerous would be able to pull the first few moves of these routes. I do think discretion is good for new climbers and it would be whole other matter if he was merely soloing 20ft. 5.9s.

I hope you like the shots, they were a bit rushed, he climbs fast.

Not sure if a fall would mean certain death (although possibly for sure). Definitely a career buster.
