Dow WilliamsTrail Run-Free Solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 14, 2015

Dow Williams

Sat, no one at the Oak Creek trail head at 7am. No one on Olive. Met only two other parties on the return run. My wife said it was due to Valentines day, but slowest Sat I have ever seen at RR and it was a free National Parks Day. Car to car in just over an hour....did a trail run to the base, switched to climbing shoes, soloed the route and trail run on return. This is my favorite free solo for the grade during winter at RR.

lovely climb, great setting, nice views of Crimson Chrysalis from its top.
We were lucky and did not see any other climbing party.

Have soloed this route twice in the past few years...to me it is one of the safer solo opportunities at Red Rock...tons of traffic thus clean rock, little if any exposed slab and a walk off.

Halloween climb with Marty and Ritwik- good times in every way except the arterial spray from Marty's hand when punctured by a cholla on the way down - Cuidado!

Really nice climb. First party to the base and cruised up. Bolt anchors (as shown in supertopo) have been chopped, but are not needed.

GroundswellPorn Convention  Sucess!


climbed this during the porn convention, jan 18th i think. wife thought it was a very strange coincidence our trip was same weekend as convention. day 1 was windy. "climbed" at black corridor. too much time off makes 5.9 awfully hard. day 2 did olive oil. forgot helmet but went anyways. ran pitch 1 into 2. belayed at crack, 3 hexes fixed pro for belay. led pitch 4/5? easy face climbing with long runouts. fun climb

Sunny 65F winter climbing with Jascha. Used a 70m rope as recommended. Overshot the 4th belay and had to down climb to remove the last nut, but otherwise uneventful.

I climbed this in spring 2000 and 2001 (though not the "plus" version). Both times we passed parties of three, which was not pleasant.

Part of a 4 day, 4 route, stint at Red Rocks during RRR. 5.7, 5.8, 5.9 and 5.10...might reverse that order next time though. Good times with Stacy...a 70m rope makes this 4 pitches, combine 2-3 which is the real climbing on this route. And worth it to, with such a quick descent. Makes for a fantastic 5.6-5.7 pitch. Route is much better than Cat in the Hat in my opinion and should be considered for a first route at Red Rocks.
