Description

Ascend vertical orange face for two bolts. As the rock transitions to harder gray limestone, the climbing becomes more powerful. Surmount the overhang on sinker pockets to obtain the third bolt and a rest. Undulating bulges provide intermittent rests over easier climbing to the chains.

Location

Scorcher is found on the right side of the Solstice Cave. Eternal Sunshine is to the left; Hot Tamale is to the right. The line ascends a patch of gray limestone.

Protection

5 or 6 bolts; no chain draws; leaver biner anchors.
