Sonnie Trotter Repeats Rhapsody
climbing.com – June 10, 2008

“Writing on his blog on June 6, he said, “Rhapsody may be an eliminate, but…there is a tremendous amount of logic behind what Dave did, and that deserves a pile of respect, I think…. The only rule is don’t bail left to the arete (a cop-out), stay on the face, and the line is very much obvious. And yes, very hard. Dave presented us all with a challenge. A challenge to climb this sequence of holds, and until someone does that challenge will always remain. I could do the ‘direct version’ and the ‘cop-out’ version, but I still didn’t climb Rhapsody, and I would not be truly satisfied.””
