Comments: Free Solo linkup of 2 of the best and most soloed Yosemite Valley 5.7s. Really great day, posting this not really as a record, but more in the hopes that someone more hardcore will shatter my time. My time is car to car with a 1 hour break between climbs for lunch and driving. Did Royal Arches first. August 2003
