Description

This route is kind of fun, but it gets no stars in the Haas/Schneider guidebook. It is a way to climb most of Polar Sandals without doing its crux. The rock contains some lichen in this area, but it is not too bad. If you want to finish on Polar Sandals, you clip from about bolt 6 on. There is no webbing on a horn after the first 5.7 section as described by Haas/Schneider. The last 15 feet up to the Solar Panel anchor is the crux.

Location

This route is just to the left of Polar Sandals and to the right of Foul Play. You can get down from the Solar Panel anchors or the Polar Sandals anchor if you join it.

Protection

Standard rack up to a #3 Camalot, anchors on Solar Panel to the right or up to the left on Polar Sandals.

Glad you posted this. FYI Kirk and I cleaned this up a lot while bolting Polar Sandals, so in fairness to Haas, it probably climbs better now.... May 24, 2014
