Description:

A nice cruise up the arete seperating the Ladder and Solar Power. High first bolt. Work right along seam to first bolt, then straight up. More difficult after third bolt if you stay right, going up along the small flake to the anchor.

3 out of 5 stars solid 10.b

New to 10s so was a challenge. 10b seems fair, if you head left of anchor at the top. Couldn't get it going right at the top... a bit tougher.

2 out of 5 stars Tough crux

Pretty cruiser up to the 4th bolt, then moving beyond that on a bad left hand pocket requires some strength.

4 out of 5 stars went right at top instead of left

instead of going left at the top I ended up going left which may have made it slightly harder. I'd say more like 10c
