/ Interviews on soloing
Not an interview, but John Long's essay The Only Blasphemy is top-notch. Several versions about, the best is in 'Mirrors in the Cliffs', edited by J Perrin.
Some interesting and also tragic interviews in this book.
Jim Perrin's Street Illegal essay is a classic and is in one of his recent collections of essays.
Not an interview but this may be of interest - http://www.thefreeclimber.com/articles/tfcJulesVerne.htm
It's a piece I wrote many years ago for a magazine about a solo I did of a notable route in the US in which I tried to convey my motivations and apprehensions honestly.
There is a 4 part thing on the Alpinist website. Part one is with Alex Honnold.
Great thread. Well worth taking the time to check out these links. Love the Alex Honnald interview recommended by Kemics and John Arran's account of Jules Verne.
These videos are hidden gems and John Arran's article is great read.
