D. Solstice Slab Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Lines currently on the Solstice Slab. Red - Aro...
An excellent place for a beginning trad leader! Decent exposure, south facing, excellent views, and good pro make up the majority of the climbing on the Solstice Slab. To top it off, it's the easiest section of Bone Mountain to find. A few hundred feet right of Family Picnic lies the obvious imposing slab which can be seen from the interstate miles below!
The slab hosts Aro's Great Adventure on the left, Sad Peter and Stinkinabuttsa going more or less straight up the middle of the slab, and Lost in the Forest up the right end.
USUALLY CLOSED IN SPRING FOR PEREGRINE FALCON NESTING
Hike right from Family Picnic until you reach a huge streaked slab. The mid anchors of Sad Peter. can be seen from the bottom.
