Description

This is a great route with varied climbing. Approach as for Solar Slab Gully, but head left and along a ledge system before reaching the base of the gully. Squeeze past a couple of trees to the base of the first pitch.

P1- (5.6) Go up a short dihedral and step left at a chockstone. Continue up past a bolt and up the face to a nice belay ledge below the chimney. It also looked possible to step into an easy chimney shortly after the bolt which leads to the same belay ledge.

P2- Enter the obvious chimney and climb up past a bolt (5.9). Exit the chimney, and head up the great dihedral above (5.9). Step left at the top to a two bolt belay.

P3- Climb up and right across the slab above (5.5 no pro) and continue up through intermittent cracks to the large terrace below Solar Slab. This pitch was a full 60m.

Either descend Solar Slab Gully from here or finish the day on Solar Slab.
