BETA PHOTO: First Tier Right.
Follow the approach to the Lower Tier of Solaris. Right Line starts by a double-trunk pine tree. There is another pine tree on a ledge 20' up the route.
Climb a face past two bolts to a ledge with a tree. Step left and climb a short pillar to the anchor. Lower 50' to the start.
Nothing special, but a decent warm-up for the climbs on the Main Wall.
5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Not a bad climb, but rather easy for a 5.9 rating. I felt that Left Line was a little more difficult personally. The crux seems to be right at the beginning and farther up was not that challenging. Still a fun easy climb and lots of other routes in the vicinity for the novice leader to enjoy. And the tree in the middle makes a nice obstacle to get around.

Ok climb. I would concur that Left Line is the more difficult of the two. Keep an eye on the large detached block above the tree.

Height-dependent - at the 3rd bolt if you can not reach the good edge you'd have to make a funky lay-back. If you can reach, it's quite easy. (6'0" would be easy, or shorter with long arms).
The real question here is about the bolts. WTF? Let's see, perfect green Camalot, stopper, stopper, .75" cam, stopper, ledge with whatever, tree. That got me 20 feet up past the first 3 bolts. All placements were bomber and I put them 4' apart for effect.

Decent route for a warm up. If there is a 5.9 move on this route, I sure could not find one.

Another good climb! Yes a bit easier than Left Line IMO, but still a 5.8 and worth doing. Again 2 stars.
