BETA PHOTO: Twilight Zone. Sustained steep climbing with crux...
A short but sustained and fun route.
Approach: Hike up the talus to the main wall of Solaris. Cut left and go past the route Contact. Bear right up the first gully. At the top of the gully you'll reach a ledge on the right below a steep wall. On the left side of the ledge, spot a line of bolts heading up. This is the route.
Climb up steep rock past 6 bolts to the anchor. Lower off.
Two stars for continuity and interesting moves.
Six bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Twilight Zone (not the best light for pictures).

Good route, steep with the bolts in just the right places.

Despite initial appearances, this is one of the better routes at Solaris.

Another "must do" at Solaris! Don't celebrate too early as it is slightly run out (but easy climbing) from the last bolt to the anchors.

Excellent, well protected route (bolts just where you want them). It's still getting "cleaned up," as there's still a fair bit of lichen/dirt/loose chips.
