This is just right of Solar Ridge on the Cascades Wall of The Meadow Dome.

Protection

1 bolt, rack to #2 Camalot.

Phil Persson led up the 3 intermittent cracks to the right of this, perhaps 15 feet right of the bolt on Coleman's, at 5.8? Then the 2nd pitch of Solar, then picked our own adventure up the head wall above the largest tree. All good. May 22, 2013

We did that line to the right, too. We thought it was P1 of Ancient Relics, 2p, 10 R. The online guide listed P1 as 5.9, which felt perhaps soft. Since we didn't do P2, I didn't add it to the database yet. May 24, 2013

Definitely sounds like you guys did the first pitch of Ancient Relics. I was battling wasps on that pitch so maybe that's why it felt 5.9 haha. May 26, 2013

First climb at Staunton - wow! The combination of somewhat small gear (that takes 'a keen eye') and interesting movement makes for some exciting climbing! Sep 21, 2014

I found this hard to protect in several places with parallel-sided flaring cracks. I'll bring offset cams next time.... May 17, 2017

This is a good route. The protection was dodgy in places. I backed up pieces where possible. Sep 9, 2018
