Description

Good little route on left side of the slab. From the base of the route, you will start up to the left and work your way to the first bolt, first bolt is a little run out but the holds are super protected. Continue up to a small over hang, then up to the top to a solid anchor.

Location

Left Hand side of Solar Slabs, Single rap with 70m rope. Also can traverse over to candid chimera and set up a top rope.

Protection

Protected well with 7 bolts, solid anchor at the top.

Crux for me was getting over the small overlap. A bolt protects this move so all is good. While the 1st bolt is maybe 15' up and left, it should be fine for most people leading this route as the climbing to the 1st bolt is probably 5.4 or less. May 30, 2015

Getting to the first bolt requires the leader to traverse left, off of the belay ledge, and then ascend about fifteen feet. A fall just prior to clipping the first bolt will most certainly result in the leader decking 30 feet below the bolt on the lower ledge. The crux, for me, was getting above the fifth bolt which is located just above the small overhang. Mar 9, 2015
I did this route 2 weeks ago, its a little sketchy getting out to the first bolt but the hand holds are pretty decent, good footing is a little scarce. From the start, you have to traverse left and start up to get to the first bolt which is why I said it was sketchy because if you fall you're going for a ride. It's a great route, I ran into some moss about halfway up which made things a little difficult but a lot of fun. Jan 29, 2014

What does that mean.....a little run out to the 1st bolt, BUT THE HOLDS ARE SUPER PROTECTED?? Solid anchor? Could you possibly provide a little more detail regarding what this "solid" anchor consists of? Mar 10, 2012
