Description

Thin and vertical-to-slightly overhanging crack just to the right of Soli Deo Gloria. Pumpy liebacks followed by the technical crux of getting into a v-shaped hand slot that ends on a ledge with a good rest. It is not over from here, as you must continue on the second half of the climb in a tricky corner with so-so pro.

Awesome moves, not the best rock. Zip it up. Especially near the bottom.

Protection

Cams from small TCU’s to 3 inches. Small to medium nuts.

This route is maby 10 ft at the most to the north of Soli de Glori. Rotton rock at start, difficult crack climbing on an ever changing crack. Once you reach the ledge at mid hight gear becomes more suspect as the rock is more crumbly up higher. It seems that someone has cleaned it over the years allowing better and larger placements in the upper dihedral. Over all it is a good route, mostly clean and devoid of shrubs and other growth. Just some friable rock up high that maby could be cleaned. Aug 25, 2009

finally climbed this. i didn't lead it, and i'm glad. that rock up high is mo' shitty. i pulled off a shoe box-sized rock right below the lip.

that said, the thing is leadable. just be careful up there...it's almost as manky as the rock at the base of wise guys.

a lead would take small cams, nothing bigger than a #1 camalot. Sep 20, 2009

You can climb the first half, which is very fun, from the same top anchor as Soli Deo Gloria and then traverse into Soli at the obvious ledge and climb the second half of Soli to the top. A directional is nice but not mandatory. Aug 13, 2018
