Climb some moderate terrain up to the start of the right arcing crack and the first bolt. Follow the crack until it peters out, clip the bolt, and crank the crux move to the next crack system. Keep your composure, and continue out the final overhang past one more bolt to the anchors. This has sustained and super fun climbing with good pro.


This is located at the back, left (west) wall of the For Real Canyon about 150' past "In Your Face". This is the Solarium Wall and has a nice ledge along the base to hang out. It gets early sun and is a good cold weather spot to climb. Super Nova is the obvious, right-arcing crack on the left side of the ledge.

POISON IVY ALERT! There is a massive bush of poison ivy around and below the ledge. It's not hard to avoid it, just a head's up.


3 bolts plus smaller sized cams up to #2 Camalot range. A #4 Camalot is useful for the lower crack, but there are other options. There is a 2 bolt anchor.
