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.

If that didn't take your breath, trying out rock climbing will. It's a full body workout that combines core strength and endurance with problem solving.

This is an involved tutorial on the technique of jumaring. It's shot on a side of El Capitan-- one of the greatest rock climbing problems in the world.
