4 out of 5 stars First Solo

This was my frist solo climb. I used a grigri and a pursik as a safety. I anchored myself into the first bolt and made a fail safe on the second that would only put tension on it if the first was to fail. I completed both pitches and made to to the top for the first time with no incident. Descended with two ropes.

3 out of 5 stars Large man Returns

Showed up at the wall not knowing what anything was and preceded to climb on the route that I thought looked the easiest to get back in the grove of things since it has been 5 months from my last climb. After getting past the 3 bolt it was pretty simple. I only brought one rope at 200 ft length so I had to repel to P1 of Goldline which was perfect because it made for a more interesting repel. And I was stoked because it was the perfect use for my pirana repel device. Jessica was on my Belay.

3 out of 5 stars Fun in the Sun

Great weather and just a handful of climbers at Texas Canyon. "Hyperion" isn't a sport climb, but fun. It's a full rope length to the anchors, but you can rappel to the P1 anchor on Goldline" or "Aenea" and than to the base with one rope.

3 out of 5 stars Better than Goldmine

More fun than Goldmine with a more obvious bolt line and less of a run out. Easy climbing but the rock quality isnt great.

2 out of 5 stars Not Sport Bolted

Interesting slab climbing on knobs, inclusions, and pockets past a small overhang/roof crux. Hyperion is still chossy and loose, even after all these years. Tightened down the loose hanger at the crux. Looks solid.
