Description

This is a short sport route with a crux between the 1st and 2nd bolt.

Location

The route is the second bolted route from the right on the Solar Slab. It starts just left of a large juniper tree then climbs up and left to the anchors.

I recommend buying Stewart Green's Red Rocks guidebook at the Garden of the Gods Visitor's Center for complete route descriptions and maps of all routes.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
Really sandy from the recent rain which made it feel a little harder today. Everything is still good. All bolts and hangers are in good shape. Anchor rings have a little wear in them from people lowering off, maybe 1/4 of the way through. May 28, 2016

This route had a handful of cool little one and two finger pockets and pretty fun movement. During warmer months, I've run into wasps in some of the pockets, so definitely be cautious about those awesome pockets. The were mainly around the huge hueco midway up, but there was one hiding in one of the right pockets close to the start. Dec 8, 2015

Three fun, interesting cruxes following a natural line for a route. Mar 27, 2015

Nice (5.9?) TR variation to Helios anchors, climbing about 15 ft left of Helios bolt line. Mar 31, 2011
