Dan Osman

Dan Osman  known for the exceptionally dangerous sports of “free-soloing” (rock climbing without ropes or other safety gear) and doing “controlled free-falls” (deliberately falling several hundred feet (his record was over 1200 feet) from a cliff while relying on a safety rope). He was known for living a bohemian lifestyle, rarely working, and living in a treehouse for months at a time. However he was the star of several rock climbing videos, which brought free-soloing to a wider audience.He died November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope length was miscalculated carrying out a controlled free-fall jump from a rock pillar called Leaning Tower in Yosemite National Park. He is survived by his daughter Emma Osman.
