David Allfrey Free Solos Yin and Yang


Misty Mountain’s latest video is a short clip featuring David Allfrey free soloing Yin & Yang, a 5.11a crack climb located in Red Rock Canyon’s Calico Basin.At 40 feet long this is a short route, but it packs a punch at 11a, and small gear is needed to protect the upper section for most mortals, as it’s harder than it looks.

The story behind the video is interesting.Our crew was setting up to shoot a different route, when Dave strolled up wearing Julbo sunglasses and headphones.He didn’t say anything, just quietly put on his shoes and stepped up to Yin and Yang.Then he fired it!Fortunately, we had a single camera on it and were able to shoot the free solo.Enjoy.
