Dawn Glanc, Hanging Out at the Belay On SOLER Route. This Photo Well Shows the Joy and Purity of This Line. There is NOT a Single Move That is Short of Excellent on Both Pitches!!! It was First Climbed in 1951, on AID by Tony Soler et.al.It was the First Aid Climb (Other Than the Stake Ladder of the 1890's) on the Tower. In 1959 Layton Kor and Ray Jaquot Made it all Go Free, so it, Ironically, Became the First Aid Line to Get Free Climbed on the Tower. Today, it is Still a Great Climb. I've Been up it More Than 100 Times,and...I Can Hardly Wait to Share it With a Partner, Again!!!! Photo compliments of Frank Sanders www.devilstowerclimbing.com

I have a picture that looks almost just like this. It's funny how that's the most comfortable stance at that belay. Feb 7, 2015
