Description:

A nice line that begins at the left end of the large low roof under the Solstice Wall. Climb up the blocky corner at the left edge of the roof then step out right on to the slab to a pod and follow a crack system straight up to a 2-bolt anchor at 85 ft.

4 out of 5 stars Didn't bother with second pitch

Because it didn't look worth doing. People complain about protecting this route, but I didn't feel unsafe anywhere...

5 out of 5 stars Rainy day...

I did this climb the other day. Basically top roped but did have to pull some gear on the way up. We were trying to beat the rain...started to get real wet when I was about 10-15 feet from top. Damn it. Was determined to finish and did.

3 out of 5 stars Like everything else, it's tiny

Good gear, though small gear. Overall not a bad climb. The second pitch is rarely done and may be a bit dirty.

I'd call it a PG for safety

4 out of 5 stars Equinox

Sketch pro (bring tiny cams) for the first few placements after stepping out on to the slab, but fun climbing overall.
