In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise

Description 

While climbing at the Solstice in general may be considered a Catch 22, this route may be the crag's prime example.

Short and stubby knobs climb to a heavily pocketed bulge. Catch a quick rest and finish on the face using edges, pockets, and small, ticking time knobs. This route is a good and varied way to get a feel for the place. Fragile at best.

Location 

This is second most left (west) route at the wall. It is just off-set from the area's main face.

Protection 

Twelve bolts and a shared anchor.

I liked this route because it follows a line of really interesting crystalized rock that winds up the corner.
