Description Suggest change

P1) Starts at the toe of the buttress, and left of the route "Solstice Celebration". Climb up a right-leaning crack with some loose flakes to a stance. Place some final small pro at your feet and bust out left onto a large sloping knob and gritty face (10b R). Above, and easy handcrack leads to a sloping area and a gear belay. 5.10b R, 80'.

P2) From the belay, head up the obvious fingers/tips lieback crack (crux, 5.11a) to a series of small roofs. Step left underneath the second roof and pull over on gritty jugs. Two bolts protect the slab above (5.10a R). A final, runout crux above involves stemming up into a flared, gritty offwidth corner with marginal gear (5.9+?, #3-4 BD stoppers, #1 ballnut).

Location Suggest change

Starts at the toe of the Solstice Celebration Wall, left of the namesake route. 2 rope Rappel from a bolted anchor to climbers' right of the final ledge (shared with Solstice Celebration 5.10c).

Protection Suggest change

Doubles from tips to hand-size, 2 bolts (3/8"), some micros or ballnuts might protect the final moves on P2.
