Description

The route name suggests that either I am the sole person to ever climb this or the fact that I put it up solo on the summer solstice, or both.
The best move on the route is right at the start past the first bolt. Borderline 5th class climbing continues up the slab past five or six more bolts to a ledge and a two bolt anchor amongst some vegetation. Above here more rock looks tempting but hasn't been climbed. I've cleaned it on rap a bit and could be entertaining...
Maybe a good route for beginner climbers to get used to the rock at UEF. Or maybe not.

Location

The route starts at the toe of the slab. Rap down.

Protection

Six or seven bolts to a two bolt Metolius rap hangers anchor. Ironically, the first bolt that protects the hardest move on the route is a spinner because I didn't drill the hole quite deep enough for the 5" bolt. Sorry. That said, I trust the bolt.
