A true soloist carry's NO gear.

I remember Perer Croft telling his account when he Soloed the Rostrum that he got to a crux section and there was a fixed sling. Being a very dicey crux he opens the sling and grabed the hold. He thought if I pop the sling will catch my arm. He got through it and toped out.

Everyone in the Valley were like... You soloed the Rostrum!!!!??!!!!

Crofts response was: "yes. BUT. He said that "BUT" ( opening the sling )

That BUT just ate him up. So the next day he went back and soloed the Rostrum AGAIN! This time he got to the crux where the sling was. Moved it aside and toped it out.

He just couldn't live with that BUT against his solo of the Rostrum.
