Description 

From the ground do an approach pitch to get to the huge ledge where the business is. One may either do the easy decomposing gully (original line) or far better, climb the face just left of the gully passing 4 bolts, 10a.

From the left end of the ledge do a couple of moves in a short crack to the first bolt. Continuous crimping up the orange/gold rock takes one up to and over a small roof then through the slowly steepening bulge. This pitch is quality edging and has several thought provoking sequences.

From the belay climb past a couple more bolts, then tend left and up on easy climbing.

The two pitches off the ledge may be combined into a single pitch.

Location 

This route is on the left side of the orange shield of rock just left of the Solstice wall.

Protection 

Bolts. Trad in the sense that it was established ground up. Sport in the way that it is protected.
