Cody leading Solito


Bolted climb to the right of Pizan. Starts in a crack system. Can place a #1 Camalot-sized piece in the crack before first bolt. Continue up very nice face past horizontals to ledge and penultimate bolt. Continue up (clip bolt on right), then left around arete to anchor shared with Pizan.


Walk off or rap climb.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (shared with Pizan)

This is a great climb! first bolt is easer climbing but a little high. You can place a medium size nut to protect the first couple moves. I would give is a 9 rather than 9+ rating.

also, one of the anchor bolts is spinning. Still seems mostly solid, but it appears that someone tried to glue it back in rather than placing a new bolt.

Using the L-R sort on my partner's MP app showed this route as "the prow." I thought the upper section under the roof was quite contrived... adding rope drag (though only for one more bolt) and falling near the bolt would result in hitting the ledge. I'd suggest skipping the roof and moving onto the face off of the ledge. The face up to the ledge was fun though.
