Description 

This is a direct finish to pitch 2 of SOS that should be reasonable to do as one long pitch if you watch the rope drag (not an issue on the rope-solo FA).

Start by climbing SOS to SS's "Rain Drop Traverse". Clip the first bolt on the traverse, and move slightly right. But rather than continuing on the traverse and clipping the second bolt, move up into the bulge instead (protected by 2 bolts). Above the crux there is a small stopper placement that protects the last moderate 20' of climbing to the anchor.
