Freerider 12d and the Nose is 14A that is a big difference. Alex has not even freed the Nose only 3 people have: Hill, Caldwell, Rodden. Burk did not fee it, top roping the great roof does not count. Can't see anybody fee soloing the Nose, the geat roof and changing corners pitch would be super insecure. Freerider is more realistic but it has several insecure sections on polished granite, this not a jug haul sport route.

Tommy Caldwell has also freed the nose in a day. Then he did Freerider as well. Documented in Dosage 4.

Free soloing the Nose is a long way off if it ever gets done. Insecure 13c and 14-...yikes. Freerider will probably get free soloed in the next few years. Just a prediction. It's a full length El Cap route that goes at just 5.12d. With guys like Honnold soloing insecure 5.13 stem corners like those found on Moonlight Buttress it seems likely that Freerider is attainable. But Honnold has publicly stated that soloing Freerider is a big step up from the solos he's done so far and it's not in his plans.
Y'all do know who mreardon is (was)?... and I'm pretty sure that his response was made before TC freed the nose?

As mreardon wrote 7 years ago:
In reply to:
Scott Burke Free-Climbed the Nose over the course of 261 days,
Burke didn't redpoint the Great Roof pitch, but unquestionably, he climbed it free.

Edit for spelling
