Manifest Destiny may not be 5.12a for those of ave...


This route starts on crimpers, then continues on easier terrain to a rest below the roof. Crank out the roof and encounter the crux. Above is another good rest before moderate climbing to the chains


This route is the second from the left at The Solarium.


8 bolts w/ chains

This route is fun. Some of holds were not nearly as great as I thought they were going to be, pumpy for sure.

For me (5'6"), I had a tough time hanging the draw which protects the roofy crux. On pink-point, the route felt about 11d to me. Try as I might, I could not get the lie-down rest before the crux right. My friends could. Oh well.

the trick to the lie-down rest is to keep scooting down until your feet are pretty much in the bush. it feels weird and uncomfortable until you get that far- once there, though, its pretty sweet.

really good- not really a .12a, imho- if the rest wasn't there, though, it'd definitely be .12ish.

I have always said this route is 11c.
