Looks like a confident climber, well within his ability, but it's always a little strange to see someone soloing for the camera... Nice video nonetheless—beautiful lines, good rock, and climbing with a smile.

Pretty lame. Is amazing how something as exciting as solo climbing can be brough down to something as unappealing as this, just because of a bad video. Or maybe is just me?

For me, solo climb is one of many beautifull ways to climb. No best or worst, just different: no hardware, no fail, only you and the rock.
Great climbers of our time solo climb to the lenses: Fawcet, Croft, Bachar, Osman and many others that push the limits of climbing, and yours styles are really a inspiration to me and my way to climb and to live.
The brit hard grit style, high balls, runouts and extreme aid routes around the world is like solo too, and must receive respected, because is a great evolution of the state of mind. Climb is much more than sport and safety routes. If you can’t understand or respect these style, or if it´s hurt you, just don’t see these video… and buy a 20mm rope!

is very difficult to aprecciate the real work on this videos, but perhaps the climber seems good.

I can see the beauty in solo climbing. Truthfully it is the way we all started climbing; climbing trees, rocks, playsets as a kid. I see glimpses of the true beauty of the climbing in this video, but hard to capture on film from the vantage points used.

I enjoyed watching the precision of the climber's moves.. almost like a scientist conducting an experiment, each step calculated, executed, then tested before proceeding.

Watching some solo videos I find my stomach turning, but this one was kind of relaxing.

Technically the production needs work. It looks like the attempt here is to make a professional quality video. If so, the climber needs to work on his clothing, and the video needs to be cleaner with more dramatic angles.

¿Supo usted todo el mueve en estas rutas antes de subir de sololos?

don't listen to the haters. Great vid. Seemed pretty clear to me that frechou wasn't soloing for the camera, but the love. And yeah, a couple of the angles weren't perfect, but the video wasn't just eye candy; it told a story/got its point across - which at the end of the day, is far more worthwhile. Hope to see more videos in this stlye...

The climbs are nice, but this techno music is annoying and doesn't fit the peacefulness of the climber and the serenity of the landscapes.

Good movie, beautiful scene. For me, this movie shows another style that sometimes is difficult to understand without a rationale. However, the videomarker and climber fills that gap with comments during the whole production making it complete.

Wow, talk about crappy quality, try using a little more than 8.65% of your per-video limit.
And yeah, techno really sucks.
