Just got the first free solo ascent of outside corner. How do i contact the FA party to let them know or the guide book authors to let them know? Thanks as always guys!

You don't need to contact them, they'll contact you.

This could be entertaining. Or not. Either way I am hungry so I am gonna grab some popcorn.

Assuming for the moment that you're serious, I've never noticed a guidebook publishing the names of climbers who got the "first free solo ascent" of anything, much less a popular easy route, unless it was also the FA.  But you could try contacting the publishers and see what they say.  BTW, the Ruckman guide doesn't even list the FA party for that route, so good luck getting in touch with those oldtimers, whoever they were.  Also, no, you almost certainly didn't.

This is probably due to Honnold getting "credit" for the first freesolo ascent of freerider.

To the OP, pics please............ ;)

It's about time someone bolted Mexican Crack.  That thing makes my little heart quiver.

Please don't tell me that you actually bolted Mexican Crack.

Anyone been up there to check yet?

Yup, Mexican Crack is bolted. Just climbed it.

100% certain the Outside Corner has been free soloed before by more than one person

100% certain half of you guys need to either fix your sarcasm detectors or pour coffee on your keyboards to prevent further typing of idiotic messages... 

Quick, the internet says Mexican has been bolted, must dispatch an inspections squad!

Quick, someone is claiming the first free solo of a road-side 5.7, must provide historical denial!

Did you really bolt mexican crack?  Did you ask the first ascent  party?  That is the general ethics.

English 2nd language?  Did you read Boissal's comment?
