Is this the guy off the TV? Well scary....!
Sean Kelly - 06/Oct/09
No its not Dean Potter. Its actually me. Amazingly Dean has actually walked this line without a leash!
F McCann - 06/Oct/09
he had a chute thugh ! still bloody scary I would imagine...
mr mills - 07/Oct/09
But did he have brown trousers?
Sean Kelly - 08/Oct/09
Dean did not have a chute (well he may have done on some practice goes) and has done it completely free - I watched the tv programme)

Who took the photo then?

My brother Niall.

Not sure a Chute would help, you'd deck in the cleft between the spire and the main face from (old, very scared) memory.
Grande Cohones to do this, complimenti!

I now have sweaty palms and tingles. Ace shot. Perfect serenity. (well, from where I'm sat in my comfy chair - I imagine you weren't so serene at this point)

I have sweaty palms and shivers also. Did you loose a bet or something? Serously, it's one of the best pics on this site, congrats and thanks
