Route Climbed: "Epinephrine" V 5.9 Date Climbed: April, 2002
Dave Honeywell and I climbed this classic Red Rocks route on a cold spring weekend. The weather never did turn nasty but we had the entire Black Velvet canyon to ourselves and the sky was clear by noon. What a classic route, it has some of the finest chimney pitches I've ever done. We climbed the route in 12 pitches using a 60 meter rope. This route goes to the top! Walked out in the dark.
Route Climbed: Epinephrine (5.9, IV/V) Date Climbed: Lots
Epinephrine is probably my favorite climb anywhere. I've done it twice on a rope, and six times free-solo. My best time is 1 hour and 6 minutes from the base of the climb to the end of the technical difficulties (end of the 18th pitch in Swain's guidebook).
