Nice TR matt, thanks for posting. Come back here and update when you get the other segments up.

As they say in Red Rock, the climb is not over until the ropes are on the ground...

Nice. Yeah, the rap on Sour Mash is a little more adventurous then you would expect. But, I don't remember ever coming up short.

Anyways, although the 6th pitch is the best, the 7th is good as well. You should have kept going.

Unfortunately, I was only in RR for a short trip, so I got to do Sour Mash and Epi, but missed out on routes like PoD and Fiddler.
