Looking Down the 2nd Pitch of Soler
The Soler route was first established in 1951 by Tony Soler et.al. Soler "aided" the route and it is the Tower's first official "aid"route. In 1959, Layton Kor free-climbed it, making it the Tower's first aid route to get free-climbed !! Today Soler is one of the Tower's more popular routes. It offers 2 pitches of excellent, well protected, 5.8+/5.9-, finger-to-hand jamming, with a hanging belay in the middle. I Know, over the decades, that I have climbed this route more than 50 times...and I still look forward to the next 50 times that I might be Blessed with climbing it. If You are climbing at Devils Tower, You need to give "Soler" a visit.
