This is such an impressive line. Climbing it with a rope one still has to stop and watch in ahhhhh! But soloing it! WOW! Ever hear of the story of Yabo's night time naked solo?

Yeah, big cojones is right! Just thinking about soloing this scares me. I haven't heard the Yabo story. Did he solo this route naked at night? Now that's crazy!

I've heard the story a few places. I've been told that he was dared to do it at night and naked for a bet of 5 dollars. Must of been really desperate for cash! I heard that he got to the crux move and started to Elvis. People started to turn around and walk away so they wouldn't have to see someone deck. He did a desperate dyno move and pulled through the crux!

His buddies also hid his clothes while he was on the route... not too cool, eh? Lynn Hill details the story in her book, "Climbing Free."
