With Jascha. Climbed Solar Flare, trending way left on the last pitch to link up with Sunspot. Recommended gear: single rack to 2" (small stoppers including micros if you do the direct start on Solar Flare).
The route involves a lot of pitches, but the climbing should be relatively fast if the climbers are competent. It helps to know the descent rappels if you are going to attempt Sunspot Ridge during the winter. The 2nd pitch (as described here) is the best climbing of the day. The 6th and 8th pitches are pretty cool rock with nice upper wall positions. With Gene from Vegas.
"No matter how big a guy might be, Nicky would take him on. You beat Nicky with fists, he comes back with a bat. You beat him with a knife, he comes back with a gun. And you beat him with a gun, you better kill him, because he’ll keep coming back and back until one of you is dead."
