Featured Route For Solar Cave

Sun Dance 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Solar Cave
Steep, sustained climb perched over the edge of the cave. Holds are mostly "juggish", with a crimp or two. Very consistent until you pull the roof, then you have a rest followed by easier climbing to the anchors. I am not 100% sure that it is a 12a. Perhaps some would rate it lower. I'll go with the book's rating.Very difficult to clean. The climb lowers about 20 - 30 ft out and 10 ft or so downhill. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
