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!

Apparently everybody has left SummitPost and found their way over here.

"Ropeless Red Rocks" = TL;DR

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
