Description

This wild route tackles the main break in the roof, just left of center. Begin about 15 left of the crack and make an easy traverse up and to the right. Place gear from a stance just below the roof and gain your wits. Make powerful moves on surprisingly secure holds and decent feet on the right wall. If you play your cards you'll negotiate a perfect no hands bat hang to place gear after the first crux. A few more hard moves gets you around the lip to a nice stance. Finish up trending right up the slab on discontinuous cracks to a good ledge with fixed anchors.

Update: The crux lip of this route as seen a fair cleaning and should be much more manageable. The rating might be soft but it didn't seem possible that a route with a bat hang could be in the realm of 5.10...

Location

To locate the route hike right from the Solstice Slab a few hundred feet until you reach a huge 25' overhanging cave. In case that isn't obvious enough there is a moose skull and pile of bones in the cave between the two routes. The cave is about 100' left of Bone Appetit.
