Description:

An awesome climb. Start about 150' left of Solar Slab on a slab below an obvious shallow right facing dihedral. Pitch 1: Ascend the slab and dihedral to a small ledge and belay. 150' Pitch 2: Go up to an obvious traverse right and then head up the left facing corner and tunnel through the arch to a nice ledge. 100' Descent: Rappel Solar Slab.

4 out of 5 stars Change Up

Traversing right for pitch two, basically the same 2nd pitch as Arch Enemy, is the way to go. The first pitch is a great lead for someone wanting to hone their skills at the grade. Place gear at will, nice rock. This wall can be quite wet...we had tons of running water in February that prevented us from going further than the bolted belay below the arch. Will get back up there soon to do the tunnel through which looks like a blast. With Eric from Vegas.
