Description

According to anthropological sources, Soloensis (or Solo Man) was a subspecies of the Homo Erectus, and thought to be from a more advanced culture than Erectus and sported a larger cranial capacity (big head).

Start as for Clovis Hunter in the open book right side of Solar Cave. Follow bolt line left over steep continuous terrain with mostly good holds. Technical and endurance cruxes await you.

Last bolt is great for projecting but when you redpoint this route you might skip it if you were as pumped as I was. This route will be very popular in the Cave as it is rare at this grade for such an accessible style of climbing.

Location

Just left of Clovis Hunter.

Protection

9 bolts, (2 of them have fixed cable draws)

Really fun route! Steep with great holds low to a surprisingly pumpy and more-awkward-than-it-appears last move over the bulge. As Aaron mentions in the description, skipping the last clip is a good strategy. My wife and I both skipped it on the send and I've watched a few people fall from there (super clean fall) after spending time trying to clip while pumped. Dec 12, 2017
