Unlike some of the other routes at Solaris, this one is already quite clean.

Nice route, but it ended just as I was getting into it.

Good climb. It dies out just as the fun really sinks in. The first half has some good moves. Easy end.

Heads up: Flake was broken today. The route is clean, but all it took was a lieback for someone to pop of the flake.

This route has no difficult moves but is true to its rating and is fun. Where you think there might be a hard move hidden holds appear.
