Description [Edit]

Free Radical shares the start of Pharside, then traverses left after the 2nd bolt and climbs an arc through the beautiful, colorful face, then finishes with an amazing crux at a thin black water streak. This is one of the best and most beautiful routes at Solitude. Lots of varied climbing on good rock and holds, with a four star crux guarding the chains. A good variation to Free Radical avoids the final crux by continuing the arc all the way back into the finishing arete of Pharside - Barracuda 12b.

Location [Edit]

Located on the beautiful face just past the ladder.

Awesome crux on beautiful rock up high. This route is stellar even though it wanders. Easier for a knuckle-dragger. Feb 1, 2012
