Clip the first bolt of Winter Solstice and then move left to reach the start of a left-facing flake system, shared with Club Sandwich and Bacon Bits, which curves up and left to join The Hernia at it's roof. Finish up via Hernia and use that route's anchors.

Essentially a slightly harder, alternate start to The Hernia that offers some good climbing along thin flakes as you stop to wiggle in gear. Worth doing if you've done The Hernia and seek more of a challenge. Worth one star out of three in my book.


Located on the far right side of the Buttress of Cracks, just to the left of Arcy Farcy, the right-most bolted route here.


1 bolt (3/8"), gear to 3" including some thin stuff, bolted anchor/rap (100')

Actually, Winter Solstice clips the first bolt of this route, because Ham Sandwich went in before its harder cousin to the right...just sayin' know, keeping the historical narrative alive.
