|SW Face Center (The Solarium)
Slab climb up patina edges and smears past a short right-facing corner (crux) with interesting stemming moves to a slight runout onto a ledge below a bulge with the last bolt where a quick pull on edges leads to anchors.
The aforementioned runout is on easy terrain but if so desired a large knob can be slung by reaching down from the ledge above the 4th bolt.
The middle of three bolted routes above the left side of the ledge at the base.
5 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Tim's Valentine )

Another great line on the wall. Lots of sun and nicely bolted with protection at obvious stances. Crux move is short, sweet and protection at your waist.
Same story about your rope, lots of grain and wear so beware.
Thanks Bob, these are great!

Good location in the sun and out of the westerly winds. Clean of rock debris.
Loved this one! Flashed it - and it's my first 5.10a!!

Really fun stemming and slab climbing ... Could be the most fun route on the wall.
