Dow WilliamsHeliotrope  Sucess!

Not thrilled. First two pitches really owned by Sunflower, by far the better choice of routes. But I wanted to see what Heliotrope was about. The 3rd pitch is a bit run out. The 4th pitch is free soloing practically. I eventually went back into Sunflower's 2nd 5.9 pitch which is well protected. The supposedly great 5.6 above is all the same. When you do Sunflower, it traverses whatever Heliotrope had to offer. A route that does not need to exist on the upper Solar Slab in my opinion. Sunflower and Sundog are both 10 times better options. With Ben.
