First route north of the Great Wall of China, on the Solarium. Climb easy rock to a ledge, then juggy pockets up a steep wall to turn around an exposed arete, then a slabby crux getting to the anchors.

5 out of 5 stars Kick ass

This thing had great exposed moves the whole way. Very sustained for the grade but no moves harder than .10b. The arete up high was exposed and really fun. The route had just enough bolts. A nice reprieve from the normal abundance of over protected routes at the gorge.

3 out of 5 stars Yup

Could have done without the slab at the end. The climbing is good but after running out of draws and having to get creative with the ropes, the experience could have been better. Did the start from down and left next to morning wood.

5 out of 5 stars One of the best of the week

Both my wife and I loved this route. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of asking her to take a picture when I was 3/4 of the way up and haning from a good jug. It took a minute for her to get the camera and take a picture - I think I could have used that minute at the crux. Had to hang. Still loved the route. Definitely the hardest 10b we climbed at the Gorge.
