RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

Hand crack on the north face of the tower. Start in a clean right facing corner (hands) and through an interesting squeeze. Jam your way out a very easy roof crack (using the foot rail) and then up a steep wide hands crack (also easy with good feet). Follow the crack as it trends right into a wide pod and then straight up to the top. Choose to end on a leftward undercling traverse or straight up on loose rock. Tops out on the East shoulder of Solstice Tower. Bolted anchor.

Location

North (shady) side of Solstice Tower, left of Jersey Girl, in a right facing corner. Rap the route with a 70m rope (barely).

Yeah. That's how we got wind of the route in the first place. Use that as a beta photo. Aug 24, 2016

Good job making it out there. Is this the crack from the "unclimbed line" picture I have on the Solstice tower page? Aug 20, 2016
