It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Dan Osman passed away while rope jumping in Yosemite at the Leaning Tower rock formation. I recall reading the rope he used was left out in the rain or snow and may have contributed to the equipment failure. Dan lived a pretty nontraditional life, often living in a tree house, climbing up waterfalls, jumping and swinging on ropes (not bungee) thousands of feet off the ground and performing breathtaking free solo feats like the one in the video below…

RIP Dan Osman (February 11, 1963 – November 23, 1998).
