  • Description 

    This route ascends the overhanging arete on the boulder right by the trail, and south of The Solar Dome. Basically this is a high boulder problem on a rope, but the crux is interesting and fun. It would get more stars if it was longer. To set up a toprope, climb up the north side of the boulder to the anchors. You may want to clip into a couple of the bolts to avoid the large swing.

    Protection 

    Four bolts and a two bolt anchor.

    Not sure why you would toprope it. The climb is bolted to be a well-protected lead. Much easier to work the moves on lead too. First ascent was on February 7, 1998. It is Rick Leitner who bolted the route. I was the first to redpoint it. Rick send it after me on the same day.
