4 out of 5 stars Heads Up about Soloing this

Don't get suckered into soloing this as a way to reach the top, unless you are very comfortable soloing friction...the last move to top this out is all friction, both hands and feet, and tends to freak a lot of people out. Lots of people are able to solo easily right up to the last move..at which point they think they are going to die. Just sayin...
