Park in the lot at Trashcan rock. On the hill to the west, you'll see a series of cliffs. The approach will take about thirty minutes. "Solar Flare" plus a number of fine routes will be found on the left side of the formation. Be sure to take a guide for these routes; it gets a little complex up there.

Now I remember! This is the other one we did. Woody took this one on. The first move has you wrestling a tree branch in order to gain the rock. The bottom section is awkward, but not hard....I thought maybe 5.6. The face moves are where the 5.9+ section grabs you. It's pretty tricky for the grade. It almost seems and looks as if a couple of holds have been lost over time. The rock shows two spots on route where it appears to have broken away. I am not certain of this as it was my first time out there..........whatever the case, worth doing. May 18, 2005

I also felt this was a little stiff for the grade (as did the two that that followed) I remember that tree was trying to snair my gear at the start.....stupid nature. May 18, 2005

Be warned: as of 2-28-15, the bolt hanger is totally rusty, though the bolt itself looked ok. A green metolius cam or similar size cam can be placed in the crack ramp maybe 8' below. Mar 2, 2015
