|The Solar Dome (aka LightHouse)
In the middle of the alcove on the far left side of the Solar Dome is an inverted V-slot. The Homesteader fires up the slot to gain a system of huge holds for a jug haul kick. The single hardest move at 5.11d comes right off the deck passing the first clip. After that, climbing is probably not much harder than 5.9 or 5.10. Stone is good, holds are unbelivable, and the wall turns out to be very steep - if only there were several hundred more feet of the same climbing! The Homesteader is a fine addition to the crag and a nice cool down buzz for the end of the day.
Eight draws and a rope.

The lower jug haul on this route is lots of fun, but I am puzzled about how to pull the upper bulge right above the ledge. It seemed quite a bit harder than 11d. What am I missing?

Unless you are really tall, the first clip on this is hard to reach.
