Between Clovis Hunter and Sapien

This route has not seen an ascent since the undercling block fell off. It is a bit harder now but probably still goes.

Start up first two bolts of Sapien and then step right to bolt line without fixed draws.


Solar Cave, just left of Solo Man and right of Sapien, shares anchor with Solo Man.

Reportedly, on December 11th, 2015, a large and critical undercling block right in the middle of the bouldery crux was pulled off. This block allowed the climber to do the clip from low before embarking on the v4/5 crux. Reportedly, it now looks like a double digit boulder problem and will likely not be repeated often.

Fun route, that should see more traffic. Not as classic or sustained as other cave routes, but still well worth doing. The business section is tricky but relatively short, so makes a good boulderer's route. After the rest only 1 moderately difficult pull remains.
