ya but it's not really a solo. kind of about the same as walking on slick rock in arches only better friction...
I would not want to jump off any 4th class approach and many 3rd class approaches. Low angle 5.0 5.3 slab is more like scrambleing than soloing. 5.3 @ the gunks feels like REAL soloing. heck 5.1 @ Seneca feels like real soloing.
DMan, perhaps you've forgotten about the steeper short section around the mid-anchor .... I would be quite impressed if you climbed though that in Tennies, never once touching the rock with your hands.
other than that 10 foot "swell" it's pretty hands free doable ain't it?
.. I'm sure I could make a stupid GoPro video of it...
I am not going to try to explain the difference to my wife.
and get ripped on for NOT useing the X possition
