Soho the Happy Dog- 12d.


Soho is an excellent bouldery route. This route climbs 2 boulder problems (a v2 to a v4/5) split by a good rest should you choose to take it. Reachy and powerful this route climbs flawless clean white sandstone as fine as any.


Not actually in the Solstice cave but just off to the right out of view. All by itself climbing a double set of tiered roofs on clean white rock.


7 or 8 bolts. A double or triple long on the first bolt is a good idea for rope drag, then long on the next two bolts. This really helps for drag up top.

Very sharp upper crux involves a finger crack with razor edges. Recommend taping left pointer finger below first knuckle. Otherwise awesome route.

Also, beware of the fixed draws. Not sure how long they have been there but they are sun damaged and a bit frayed. Inspect before trusting them.
