Showed Joe A the route, worth doing again. Two pitches with 70m. I took that first pitch all the way to the top of the flake itself, over 200', and set up small to medium cams there. Then to the top of lower Solar Slab.
Climbed this and the first 7 pitches of Solar Slab with Jascha. We got our second rope stuck while rapping Johnny Vegas and ended up rapping a single rope in the dark. Returned the next day to retrieve the rope and clean up my ad hoc rap stations. Joanne Urioste and friends were climbing Johnny Vegas just around the corner.
Fantastic route in reference to the lower Solar Slab area, yet gets no stars from Handren? Real surprised. Excellent long 5.9 chimney with several grade moves on solid black varnish. Easy to protect. A bit cold in December, but a must if you are into Beulah's Book. The 2nd pitch was a real nice 5.7 by Red Rocks standards. I took that second pitch to the very top of Johnny Vegas's 3rd pitch, but we are talking a full 200' stretcher to do this. With Ben from New York.
