Yesterday I headed up First Creek Canyon to try Branch Whitney's route up "Decision" Peak. As on, say, First Creek Peak took only my good hiking sandals. I got stopped at the second-last slab (where it goes up to the "oak bush"). I decided it was more than I wanted to descend on the return. Scarier than the slabs below Crack McMuffin, or anything I soloed last year (see "Ropeless Red Rocks"); to wit: Group Therapy, Johnny Vegas, Cat, Mr Z; or the descents from Solar Slab, Mescalito (rappel route!), rappel route down First Creek Slabs. Not to mention Whitney's routes on First Creek Peak and White Pinnacle.
Btw: the * * * who spread orange peels over the upper half of First Creek Canyon trail yesterday deserves to be pilloried at the trailhead for a month!
