DescriptionLured by the three star grade and it's close proximity to where we were, I decided to try this chosspile.
Start up on an easy slab to reach the first bolt, then commit to the overhang. None of the holds are straight down here, so commit to laybacking, and stemming to make upward progress. This section felt pretty hard for 11c, but it may have been the chossy dirty rock.
Unfortunately or maybe fortunately the route seemed to end after the 4th bolt. There was a chopped 5th bolt ahead, and a 6th bolt with a bail biner on it. Attempting to reach the 6th bolt, a lot of large pieces of loose rock were encountered on still pretty difficult ground, with a potential large fall awaiting. So I bailed from the 4th bolt. Looking at this from the ground, I couldn't see any bolts past the sixth bolt, and no sign of a second pitch. It did look like there were a set of anchors that could have been the end of the first pitch.
I normally don't post routes I haven't sent, but if anyone has any more information on this route, please post up, otherwise stay off of this unfinished chosspile.
With enough cleaning this could probably be a 1-2 star route.
LocationFar right side of Solar Cave, furthest route to the right. Starts about 10 feet left of the start for "Sundevil".
