this is NOT Freeclimbing! It's called Free-Solo.
Free Solo: climbing without a rope, harness and safety gear.
Freeclimbing: To climb something free means, that you are secured with a harness, rope and gear. But you arent't allowed to fall during the route. When you are at the top and didn't fall, you've done this route free.

What about parkour

Author bernhnic2 ( ago)
paragliding, speedflying, base, back-country skiing, DH........... what a retarded list

Author Matt Bershinsky ( ago)
Iiiiiiin case anyone wanted to know, big mountain/backcountry skiing is the single most dangerous popular sport. Period. You go fly off 100 foot cliffs on 55 degree slopes with avalanches chasing you down, and then you can bitch about "motocross"

Author 17MuG ( ago)
There is a difference between free climbing, free soloing and deep water soloing..

Author justin colburn ( ago)
let me stop you right there. pbr riders are thee biggest bitches you will ever meet hands down. ok continue

Author Tom Lawson ( ago)
climbing up scaffolding is not an extreme sport, even without a rope and harness. I'm not interested in that shit as it really doesn't require much technique, strength of bottle to climb up ladders. Soloing up a mountain face is what I'm interested in and I'm sure those mad dogs out there that do solo up sheer mountain faces aren't interested in some fools who climb up simple cranes for likes and shares. It's called 'rock climbing' and not simply 'climbing' for a reason.

Author tenacious645 ( ago)
Free climbing is absolutely nuts. My hat's off to the guys and gals who do it, and good luck to you. It gives me anxiety just watching it. I'm not afraid of heights either (I've been skydiving and had a lot of fun doing it considering it was my first time in an airplane) it's just the endurance required for free climbing is insane. There is not quitting half way. What if you get a cramp! Or what if you get sleepy and fancy a nap?

Author tenacious645 ( ago)
I wonder if that bull rider knows he looks like a sissy.

Love the commentary line "you need a hefty set of balls or a sturdy set of ovaries" Ha!

Author asdf fdsa ( ago)
You're compleatly mistaken with the climbing terms. Freeclimbling means climbing without using anything but the rock to hold/stand on. But you can use a rope and so called quickdraws to prevent a fall to the ground. What you showed is Free Soloing, where you climb without any protection. And the same story with the Highlines. You can (and you actually showed some footage) use a rope to protect you from falling to death although a few (actually realy realy few) Highliners do it without the rope.

Author fgsdfs dvsdvs88 ( ago)
parkour should have been here

Author callisen ( ago)
No freediving??

Author Jose Quesada ( ago)

Author yoshyoka ( ago)
Skylining, skating downhill and Vulcano surfing? Are you serious? The first is just a side-note to climbing. The second would be extreme down a glacier but in a controlled environment and with protections I don't see it as extreme. Vulcano surfing is just snowboarding on sand and small rocks down a slope, which is safer than actual freeriding.
I'd substitute with downhill/freeride/trials mountain biking, para/hang gliding and kite surfing.

Author zachary garland ( ago)
snowmobiling. #cainsquest
