Description 

Great route. Start with some blocky face climbing (2-3 moves) then get into a perfect hand crack for about 50 feet. Keep an eye on the face for some welcome foot holds.

Location 

To the right of Orange sunshine. If you want to top-rope, bring an extra long bit of webbing to extend past the edge.

Protection 

Gear from .5" to 3" cams and some medium nuts. There seems to be good placements all the way up the route.

Don't underestimate this fine climb!

Wonderful climb... and you better know how to jam or you will fail the exam! Two #3 camalots are useful. Anchor isn't setup well for a top rope, so plan on bringing your climber up and rapping off.

Fun exit to the left into the top of the route Solar King. Works great for TR and lowering.

Could use a new bolted anchor.

Thank you to whoever updated the anchor up top this fall! Now two modern bolts rather than a single good bolt, a manky buttonhead, and an old pin.
