John Peach takles the first roof on fun big holds!...


Start atop block pile at left side of Solar Cave. Clip first bolt out right and climb straight up through strenuous first roof and tricky second roof to bolted anchors.


Left side of Solar Cave.

The other day, I pulled a large rock off of the wall on the way to the first bolt (which I managed to catch with my helmet). I'm told that I should have gone up the slot on the left side of the pad. Please be careful on the low-angle portion of this route.
