  • all right, so And what's different about climbing a building versus climbing Iraq?

  • What did you first notice?

  • Let's say that most of the time it would be mawr repetitive, but sometimes that that that that can be a trap.

  • Because you guys focus in some of the buildings, you there is no way to have a rest, so it means that step by step.

  • It's like your body.

  • It's like a tank, and the gas is getting lower and lower and lower until if there is no more gas, your arms are opening and your debt okay, so it's repetitive.

  • But it means you can't stop and you have to keep going, which means 20 floors of that lactic acid in your mouth.

  • Exactly.

  • You you may be completely, uh, you can't go any further.

  • It's like if you are doing push ups, for example, or pull ups you may do.

  • You may be able to do 50 but you can't do 51 on to climb that burning, and fortunately you need 51 but utterly meat is 50 and whereas in a natural setting, you could maybe use some other muscles and usually use this.

  • But when The tank is empty.

  • It's in.

  • It's done.

  • Okay, okay.

  • All right.

  • Let's get back to Chicago.

  • Sears Tower again.

  • It's a scary building to me.

  • I honestly also, I don't see anything to hold onto Up there.

  • You nearly died on the Sears Tower.

  • Yeah, because unfortunately, I didn't know that, actually, all the A C machines, they are located near the top.

  • Okay, on Dyer was like there was, like, some moisture on the building, which I did.

  • I couldn't see, so it took me by surprise.

  • So I nearly fell.

  • I didn't.

  • I managed toe Hold on.

  • You know, to give my, uh, my maximum not to fall and then finishing the last 80 m off the building really straining heart.

  • What do you do when you're up there and you think I'm dead or I'm fucked?

  • Like, how do you keep it in control?

  • Because Alex had a similar experience, I think, on half Dome, when he free solo that, you know, eight years ago, where he got part way up and he felt he felt similar.

  • He's like, I don't feel comfortable here, and he had to really stay focused to get out of there.

  • And I know he spent years thinking about that experience before he went after El Capitan.

  • The you fight to stay alive, that that's the only thing.

  • So the only thing that keeps you hanging on the surface is that you don't want to die, okay?

  • You just don't want a fucking die, and you're gonna give your everything to stay alive.

  • And then yes, when you are reaching the top, it really feels like you're reborn.

  • But if you think I'm gonna die, I mean, how do you keep your adrenaline from spiking and panicking?

  • Because then you're still there A minute later and you still have to do.

  • I guess that's training yours off.

  • Experiencing that kind of situation.

  • Um, you are kind of your body is train.

  • Your mind is trained.

  • Your mind is not giving up.

  • You're not.

  • You're not surrendering.

  • You surrender up because you fall.

  • But as long as you can, you are kicking your ass to stay alive.

  • Right?

  • So that's where all your free solo experience comes into play.

  • Because if you hadn't have done that, you probably wouldn't have made it.

  • No, no, definite.

  • Definitely.

  • It's a long, long process, actually, okay.

  • It takes.

  • Nobody knows that for like almost 10 years, I was free slowing on a daily basis.

  • 5.

  • 12 c 5.

  • 12 d 5.

  • 38 every day.

  • That was what I was doing everyday.

  • Whatever was the weather conditions, whether it was raining.

  • What?

  • It was minus five degrees.

  • When I was sick with 39 degrees.

  • I was climbing.

  • I was taking my fucking revenge.

  • What?

  • I thought I was dead in 1982.

  • I had to show to myself that I was capable to do something with my life.

  • Why wait?

  • My wife help while stop my wife?

all right, so And what's different about climbing a building versus climbing Iraq?
