Solo Solo ascent by: scottydo on 2010-05-03 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Good stuff

Did this Rope Solo. Got lucky and there was only one team in front of me and they ended up bailing. I only made it to the top of pitch 6 since the guys in front of me were moving slower together than I was alone (believe it or not), but I enjoyed it none the less. Great beginner wall. Kor roof kicks ass!
