Free Soloing – Base Jumping

I am scared shitless of climbing free solo. I am scared enough of run-outs to not even consider free soloing anything harder than 5.4. I used to think all free soloists are crazy, and in a way I still do, but I am also in awe of those who pull if off to solo super hard stuff almost effortlessly. Till the day they fall and die that is, of course. Anyway, this video of Steph and Dean sums it up. They may be crazy, but they’ve got balls, and this must feel like the ultimate kind of climbing. Question: is it still soloing when you’re using a parachute ?
