3 out of 5 stars Great 11

Great climb. Small holds and fun moves, many of the lower holds you have to tweak your fingers just right.

5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

After a long and wonderful affair with Solar Flare I got a clean lead Saturday afternoon.

Thank you Seth, Ben, Tres, Paul, Jim, Dave, David, Brian, Cole, Mark and Craig... You guys helped me dare to believe, to dream bigger dreams. You were there to catch my falls and encourage me forward, even when my knees were knocking. We've chased our dreams together. By seeing you step up, it's inspired me to try harder...

Tres, I would not have grown as I have without meeting you, that day at Rose years ago. Since that time I've lead my 1st 5.10, 1st 5.11 and taken at least one noteworthy wipper, thanks for catching me. You not only welcomed me into the group, but have always believed in me. I was glad to have you belaying me on Solar Flare, I was able to fully let go and climb. Thank you for being one of those really good friends, through thick and thin...

Thank you all for the climbing and friendship over the years. I look forward to more of these adventures, til long after were old and crusty.

May we all realize our dreams, climbing and otherwise.

Scott
