BETA PHOTO: Summer Solstice climbs the left facing corner left...
In a canyon with few moderates, this route is definitely worth checking out. It's got a really crappy first pitch, so it's best to rap in after climbing Obe Won Canobe and just do the second pitch.
P1: Start in back of a gully and climb bushy cracks of various sizes (basically whatever looks good) to reach a ledgy alcove below a large roof shaped like an elephant's foot.
P2: Climb up beneath the large roof on the left side (better rock is further left), pull past the roof into a corner with a good crack that goes from fingers to big hands. Follow the left-facing corner to the top.
The left side of the Hidden Valley Wall. The route is obvious due to the big roof on the second pitch. See the photo.
A standard rack up to 4".
