The left half of the Solstice Cave.  There are some new lines and lots of silly linkups since this topo was drawn. See this [[107040917]] for route names and descriptions.

I think the line for "Frantic" is incorrect. Unless he updated it after he sent it. Originally the line started using the first three or four bolts on 'Buff'. Up to where that major roof break starts. At the break, he stayed below the lip and worked out to the two finger pocket and then traversed across on that broken rail. Where he would rejoin the line you have on this topo. I think one more bolt and then you'd find the crux.

We did watch him install some of the bolts you've attributed to 'Frantic', but that was the day before he sent it using the method described above. Remember the weekend clearly, hearing Kevin's shouts of victory... followed by a Midland Kid's screams of pain, as he broke his ankle blowing a clip over on Fossil Wall. Feb 17, 2011
