Description 

On the right side of the Solar Dome, as you face the climbing routes, is a ramp-slot-arete system that starts off a ledge, and just left of the arete is a clean, steep face that is called Lady Of The Light. The name has very personal meaning for Mark and many other Boulder climbers (just ask him the story). While a short route, Lady packs a lot of complex climbing in the distance it covers. Climbing starts rather blank for the feet and after a clip or so stabilizes with a good rest. From here to the anchors the climbing just gets a bit harder with each move. This entails mostly edges and side pulls with a long crux reach rightward for thin fingers. Another powerful move through a narrow slot gains the anchor. I'll go with the three stars for the moves, continuity, and quality of the stone. But, to keep things in perspective, this not the Diamond here, just a brilliant, short problem with an important history. For my own preferences, I'd call Lady Of The Light the best route on the Solar Dome.

Eight or so draws and a rope.
