This past weekend my friend Denise and I made the trek up to the base of Mount Olympus in Salt Lake City to solo the locally famous West Slabs route (5.5, 1600+ ft). The entire route is one clean piece of bomber quartzite and we had a blast on the way up. It felt great to be able to climb so high so fast and move fluidly all the way up the giant slab. Plus this was a great rehab workout for my pulley injury. My Insights were the perfect do-all shoe for this route with a one hour approach, one hour of easy slab climbing, and 1.5 hour technical walk off.
