Description 

This bolt line fires up the center of the Solar Dome and is its longest route. This provides a good warm up for the harder lines to be found. Locate the climb at the center of the face, right of the overhung face and left of a clean slab.

The route is interesting (curious?) in that it can be climbed as a very easy 5.8 sport climb (read 5.6 trad) or you can avoid the obvious easy way and make it harder. Pick your poison! A good, safe training route for the beginning leader.

9 QDs and something for the two bolt anchor.

The book calls this 5.9, but no move was harder than 5.8, so it is correctly graded on here.
