DescriptionIt looked so good from the ground....
This is the steep face and splitter roof crack next to Summer Solstice. Begin by climbing that route up to the "elephant foot" roof. Once high enough to step out onto the lip, move right and climb sustained 5.10 face up to a ledge and the roof splitter. Pull the 5 foot roof with good hands that narrow to ring locks before the crack doglegs right.
The roof crack is very sharp, even the most seasoned of Unaweep hard folks might consider taping up.
This is a great variation to the standard finish of Summer Solstice - if leading this- avoid the face climbing down low and traverse much higher at a horizontal crack.
I hope to come back and add a few bolts to the lower face, it's a fun TR and will be a great, sustained lead.
