I feel fine. Your statement implys that climbing is different from soloing which I find to be massivly uninformed/ignorant. Soloing is climbing. One of the worst accidents I have been on scene for was a top rope failure. 18 or 21 broken bones. I forget which#? Ironicly the victim gave me shit for soloing about a decade after his top rope accident
Gravity does not care if you use a rope or not. At least when you are soloing you rely mostly on yourself and not the equiptment.
If you think soloing is the same as climbing with a rope/belayer, YOU'RE the one who is "massively ignorant". I contend that if you find them the least bit similiar, then you haven't come close to finding the bounds of your personal envelope.
BIG difference WRT gravity if you screwup and you've effectively protected yourself, or going splat.
I find it incredulous that someone who has soloed at all, would come out with such an ignorant statement.
Don't sweat it darwined. You are correct.
And trad, you are correct about your spelling. It sucks.
