Michael Reardon Soloing at Burren, Ireland
The Burren in Ireland is 60 square miles of perfect limestone. Michael told me about this place repeatedly over the years, but it wasn't until I finally visited that I understood why he speaks so highly of the area. It is also a place where the ethics are of the highest standards, with no bolts allowed! Headpointing and natural gear is the style, though soloing and highballing are obviously allowed as Michael did more than 100 solos on this day alone.
