Solar Flair


Delicate, pocket and crimp moves to become established on the arete, followed by easier climbing until you reach the last face.


Just past the little bridge, the left line on the obvious face.


Quickdraws and one obvious, bomber placement for a 3" cam half way up. Bolted anchors, shared with Sunspot.

Cam placement is rather hidden if you aren't on the arĂȘte, I missed it because I stayed on the right face. Rather tricky crux getting to the anchors in the last 6 feet.

Yeah, Micah, I could see how you might miss the cam placement if you stayed on the face the whole time. If you travel left, onto the arete, there's a large crack that is perfect for that, the climbing on the arete is easier than on the face.
