Description 

Climb up the inside corner. Near the top of the corner, move up and left then step back right to a bolt. Climb slightly up and right to another bolt. Slab up and right passing a #2 and #6 BD nut placements to another bolt. Step slightly left and up to a small ledge. Move right clip a bolt, go straight over the bolt for the 5.10 finish or climb way right(much easier) and then back left to reach the 2 bolt belay. Belay is at 105 ft. Extend the belay down if lowering or top roping. Watch your ends.


Location 

This climb is not at the Solitude Wall. When you reach the short overhanging bulge on the Solitude trail, start traversing left. Wander left about 150 ft and you will hit another wall. On the far left side is an obvious 30 foot right facing inside corner. Start up at the inside corner.


Protection 

.4 to 2 inch cams for the inside corner, #2 and #6 BD stoppers, 4 bolts
