Hey,

Didn't know where to put this. I am looking for information regarding Deep Water Soloing locations in the U.S or Europe/Asia.

Anything will do. I googled it a few times but just kept getting blogs and stuff. Are there any websites that list locations etc.?

I'm not the right person to help you but you may want to clarify whether you mean "OK to fall" or "not OK to fall"....

Summersville = OK to fall. Calm lake, bob to surface.
Southern coast of England = not OK to fall. Water is deep, people occasionally free-solo, but surf pounding against boulders at cliff base means that failure can be unpleasant/fatal.

isn't there DWS in AZ? There's a lot of semi-cool pics on 0friction.com (yes, semi-cool picks, ignore the over-sexed banter).

Any beta on where - is that just Lake Powell or somewhere closer to PHX?

I hear that Summersville is being watched pretty hard with a $5K fine. Anywhere else in the US good to DWS? Looking for a S0 or S1ish location....any help would be appreciated.

This Summersville issue has been clarified on several different threads.

DWS = OK

Cliff Jumping = Not OK
