Speed climb rock walls like Spiderman

Dan Osman was a real life Spiderman. This wild man did not die recklessly, but due to unfortunate equipment failure in Yosemite in 1998. This week is the tenth anniversary of his death.

This is archived footage of his record breaking ascent of Lover's Leap. He climbed 405 feet in under 4 minutes-- all as a free-soloist without a harness, rope or safety gear.

Catch 0:20 for a crazy anti-gravity leap.
