Hardest Oz Solos? 26-May-2004 At 5:16:54 PM dodgy
I try to explain what I get from climbing to non-climbers by talking about the sense that whilst climbing there is nothing else in the world but the next move to the next hold.

When soloing that feeling is amplified to a huge degree, even at 50-80% of what you might lead.

I don't know that asking what the 'hardest' solo is fits. I think it's an individual thing, and unlike leading you wont get people trying to outdo each other, or even find climbers with a 'ticklist'. I think the performance of a soloist is probably calculated by looking at what they can lead, and how close the solo is to that.
For this reason John Bachar has to be the man. He hardly ever climbs with ropes, and at 50+ years of age he still solos 5.12+++

The hardest solo in Australia?

It was the last one YOU did, wasn't it...
