Description:

The Cave's namesake climb, and one bad mutha of a route. Solstice is the first route you come to as you exit the catwalk. Ascend ever-steepening ground to a massive roof. The technical crux is on the face, and the gymnastically inclined can finagle a no-hands batman rest at the start of the roof. A must-do Obed route.
