Short route right (downhill) from Doctor Michael Solar that's just slightly harder than its uphill neighbor. Goes straight up starting at twin cracks to the same tree above Doctor Michael Solar. Walk off to left.


Standard rack.

No comments yet so I'll add one.

If you're going to climb Dr. Michael Solar, you might as well do this too as it's right next to it. It's a short route, but gear placements are fairly abundant, and it has some nice layback moves with hands in cracks and jugs to either side. Nothing terribly exciting, but if you're new to leading and just did the route to the left, take two steps to climber's right, and try it. Apr 5, 2015

During a time of unemployment, I built a ghetto camper setup on top of my truck that vaguely resembled to a lunar module, and due to my truck having the handling response time of a spacecraft and an obsession with space, I named it "The Apollo Lander." As such, I felt very compelled to climb this due to the name alone.

Point: it turned out to be a fun little pitch and worthwhile if you're in the area. Conveniently ends right at a tree for belaying, a short walk off. Excellent addition to a tour d'obscure of the West Ridge. I personally found a couple ball-nuts, if you're into that sort of thing, to be handy where it pinches a bit near the top; small nuts would work too, but ball nuts are sweet. Feb 5, 2017
