Description Suggest change

Tanning Block? I believe this refers to sunshine, but I will say that leather fingers would have been of some benefit on this line. The holds are a bit rough. The friction is nice to have tough, as the second clip is from a tenuous yet pumpy lieback move. The holds are small and techy.

It has reasonable climbing and is hard for such a short route. The climb is 30' in all, with all of the punch of the line in the first 18 feet.

Location Suggest change

On the upper of the two towers/boulders below the right side of the Solar Dome, this line ascends past 3 bolts on the South Face, past a shallow flake/offset. Climb through this with the crux being a several-move sequence past the 2nd bolt (though clip) and onward up and left (3rd bolt) and then up the lower angle rock above to a bolted anchor.

Protection Suggest change

Bolts to a bolted anchor at 30' or so.
