Description

Solo System is found just to the left of the large boulder described under 'Star Dancer' - a slab angling just a bit to the climber's left.

A fun route and a good introduction to Rushmore friction. For most of the route there are nice, big crystals for the hands and feet. At a couple points, however, you 'get to' make a couple pure friction moves. The climb gets easier the higher you get.

Once at the top you can rap down or walk off to climber's left. Note that it is physically possible to set up a TR here, but you'd be setting yourself up for a big swing if you fell - not recommended.

Protection

7 bolts and 2 bolt anchor.
