go free solo...far away from everyone else.

No

Yes, at least far enough away where most of us don't have to watch a beginner crater.

Certainly far enough away so that you don't fall on someone and kill him/her as well as yourself. Speaking of falling . . . DON'T FREE SOLO

You speak with such conviction and authority. You must have great practical knowledge of the subject at hand.

You know I don't--nevertheless, I hope no one I know ever dies from free soloing and that I never see anyone die doing it. I think climbing is beautiful, but so is living.

I once hoped no one I knew would die climbing but that didn't stop it from happening. She was sport climbing at the time. It's all just climbing. The discipline doesn't mean much. We make our own rules to this game and play by them at will.
