A subspecies of the Homo Erectus, Soloensis (or Solo Man) was thought to be from a more advanced culture than Erectus and sported a larger cranial capacity (big head).

Start as for Clovis Hunter in the open book right side of Solar Cave. Follow bolt line left over steep continuous terrain with mostly good holds. Technical and endurance cruxes await you.

Last bolt is great for projecting but when you redpoint this route you might skip it if you were as pumped as I was. This route will be very popular in the Cave as it is alone at this grade for such an enjoyable style of climbing.


Just left of Clovis Hunter.


9 bolts, (2 of them have fixed draws)
