Eric TiptonRoute Climbed: " Eagle Dance" V 5.10 A 1 Date Climbed: Dec. 1997
Probably not the best route to do on the shortest day of the year, but what a great route. Watch out for the the pitch in the white rock, it must of been pitch 9 or 10.

Bob Cable and I didn't make the main summit that day, walked out thru verglas ice in the dark as usual.

Eric TiptonRoute Climbed: "Levitation 29" V 5.11 Date Climbed: March 1999  Sucess!
Climbed this classic Red Rocks route with Bob Cable. A very demanding climb but well worth the effort, The summit is a ways from the top of the climb, but looking down the "Rainbow Wall" is spectacular.Oh yeah almost forgot we walked out in the dark again.

kullabergRoute Climbed: solar slab Date Climbed: jan 2002


myles and I did the whole thing back in january, dutifully belaying every pitch. we descended the gully to the east via a dozen rappels and downclimbing, which all in all was harder than the climb. nobody else on the route that day.

kullabergRoute Climbed: oak creek canyon to summit (hike) Date Climbed: dec 2001  Sucess!


well josh, i just hiked to the summit. pale effort in comparison, yet quite a worthwhile day in the life of an average adventurer.

long hike, beautiful summit in winter low light. all the ice in the creek was amazing.

JoshRoute Climbed: Many Date Climbed: Many (2002)  Sucess!


I've free-soloed most of the worthwhile routes on Rainbow Mountain that are 5.10 and under. One of my favorite morning workouts is to free-solo Beulah's Book, Johnny Vegas, or Solar Slab Gully up to Solar Slab, then down the Black Orpeus descent and out Oak Creek Canyon. My best time is 24 minutes and 55 seconds from the bottom of the first pitch of Solar Slab Gully to the top of the last pitch of Solar Slab (14 roped pitches according to the Swain guidebook). If you can beat this, let me know!
