Follow the approach to the Main Wall of Solaris. Start Me Up starts 50 feet left of the big triangular roof of The Luminosity, at a face just right of a blunt arete.
Climb a steep face past three bolts, then ramble up an easy slab to the anchors. Lower 65' to the start.
5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
Easy, fun, and clean.

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.
