Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details


Waves starts in the main dihedral in the center of the main wall. This is really a well-bolted slab with a few interesting moves that are very un-slab like. Good climbing on solid rock make Waves of Rays one of the better lines on the Solar Dome. Some folks rave about this line, and it is a good line with some interesting edge climbing to be had. Personally, I figure it's best feature is the tanning slab at the base which, from time to time, offers some of the best scenery in Boulder.


9 bolts, a 2 bolt anchor with rings, and a rope.

Is there any legal approach to this crag? Mar 7, 2002
With the bird closures, probably not. Mar 7, 2002

Rick & I were responsible for bolting the line, but we were joined by several ladies for the first ascent.

F.A.: Rick Leitner, Mark Rolofson, Dianne Barrow, Marget Mestdagh & Claire Mearns on January 18, 1998.

One of my favorite 5.10 sport climbs in Boulder Canyon. Cool moves up the slab & a stemming corner lead to a vertical face crux. Perhaps easier to do the crux moving more right & then back left. The interesting slab finish should get your attention. Perfect stone that was clean the first time I touched it.

9 bolts / 2 rings. Jul 26, 2017
