The day after his solo of The Phoenix, Alex went on to solo the Chouinard-Herbert Route, a 15 pitch 5.11c on the Sentinel Rock.
Alex commented to UKC:
"It's been a crazy few days and I'm really tired right now. I've been filming with 60 Minutes for a profile they want to air in the Fall. I don't know if that's even a program in the UK, but it's a big news thing here I guess.
The CH was something for them, the Phoenix was something for me... I'm happy with both routes, though they were vastly different experiences."
