4 out of 5 stars Sweet route

The runout on the first pitch can be tamed by looking for good gear right of the waterstreak. The crux is getting into the chimney and once your in there, there is no way to fall out. You can get a good medium size cam before entering the chimney so don't sweat it. The fingercrack is 20 feet right after exiting the cave and is more of a variation to Solar Slab than anything else. Albeit an awesome 100 foot long splitter crack variation.

4 out of 5 stars Led p1, followed p2&3

i didn't find p1 too too runout, thought the squeeze chimney on p2 was moderately terrifying. p3 is an excellent long finger crack that goes between two anchors on the solar slab route itself.

4 out of 5 stars scary!!!

I don't think I did anything that scary in my life. I just added the route, so my ascent note is the description above.

Led pitch 1, followed pitch 2.
