Climb along the left-facing corner at the far right edge of Green Pillars, clipping the bolts on Red Eclipse to the left (note - the 2nd bolt is a long reach and hard to clip).


It is at the far right edge of the Green Pillars area.


4 bolts.

This would be a 3-star route on lead if only the bolts were closer to it. It does not make much sense to move way left off of the route to use the Red Eclipse bolts. Instead, toprope it from the anchors on Red Eclipse, which can also be reached by leading Ian's. Solar Eclipse is a fine line with a crack that narrows to fingers in spots and disappears in others. A couple nice jugs along the way to keep it moderate. Hardest moves seem about 5.9. Nov 22, 2008

Solar actually follows the bolts up to the right of Red Eclipse running up the arete or fins of rock. Anchors are hidden from below, and be careful of the loose block (marked with an X) and the loose gravel at the top. Enjoy. Mar 24, 2012

A fun challenging climb, use the toprope off the climb to the left. A great place to work on laybacks, look for the huge, underlying hold. Apr 21, 2014
