That's a great story. Interesting how it expanded to mythology.

No way ,,,all wrong.

I was driving down the canyon and out of the corner of my eye I see the rostrum.

Hedge, Bullwinkle, Russ and Roxjox were free soloing it ......

A few years back Brad Gobright soloed past me as I watched from the top of the OW belay.

Snowhazed,

so you got to actually watch Gobi as he soloed it? That kid is solid. He on-sight climbed every pitch of Romantic Warrior as well around that time I think.

Niels from SAR solo'd it by headlamp after an all day SAR training in 2011. Borrowed my lamp for it. Wasn't sure how I felt about handing it over knowing what he was about to do...
