This guy is a great role model. I love his philosophy and approach to climbing. I personally love to solo sometimes. Most people would consider soloing to be stupid or crazy however there is a great deal of freedom associated with it. I don’t have to worry about whether my belay is going to catch me, or worse. After decking from anchors due to an inexperienced belayer it’s been very difficult to break back into that lead head. At least if I’m soloing it’s on me.
