Facing, Head On, the Fine Line between Fun and Terrifying

Ropes are so last year, as is climbing until you’re just a little bit tired; these days, hardcore climbers are all about free-climbing (i.e., climbing with no ropes connecting you to the rock you’re scaling), and they’re all about doing it until they’re so tired they simply let go. You heard me: they let go, no ropes attached.

Here’s the catch: instead of letting go in a tragic fashion, climbers like David Fusté and Turko Ortiz let go of the face of the rock with one crucial component in their back pockets. They have parachutes. Fusté and Ortiz have coined the sport deep void soloing, and whether you’d be game to partake in it on your next outdoors adventure, one thing’s for sure, and that’s that climbing guides worldwide are 100% up for the challenge.

Climbing guides from Bhutan to Turkey, Canada to Switzerland prioritize safety, but they also seek thrills, and they energetically strive to push themselves to the next level. Whether you’re on the market for a climbing guide in Spain who can show you the best walls of Catalonia, or a climbing guide in France who can take you to a plethora of stunning rock faces in the Pyrénées, there’s a climbing guide out there, ready to share with you the trip of a lifetime, parachute-and-free-falling included or not.

There’s no doubt that deep void soloing will give you an adrenaline rush, but guided climbing tours in various breathtaking spots around the globe also guarantee energizing your mind, body and soul. Watch this video, get inspired, and then sign on up for your very own climbing expedition. You won’t be sorry.
