Description

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

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
