I just heard on the radio that this guy has fallen into the Atlantic while soloing on a cliff in southwest Ireland and is missing…
The missing man is 32 year old Michael Reardon, from Connecticut… one of the world’s leading Free Soloists…that is… rock climbers who climb without the aid of any safety equpment. He and a friend had just climbed the scenic spot Wireless Point, on the north side of Valentia Island, when Mr Reardon slipped into the water… aplunge of 70 feet. Mr Reardon is also a well known filmmaker and writer in the US.
They’ve called off the search for the night. That seems like bad news, if the guy is in the Atlantic.
I send good thoughts his way. Hope he makes it.
