Above the fifth bolt, you'll wanna stick that cam ...

Description 

This follows a nice seem and then goes over somewhat sharp face climbing, which might be where King Solomon will take his revenge.

This is really a mixed sport route with only one place at the top of the crack (fifth bolt) to protect.

Place a .5 - .75 camalot otherwise may seem spicy and spacious, like doro wot.

Said the route finder, "a 5.11 climb for a 5.12 climber"

Location 

This route starts at the top of Tenish Tenish. Normally, these routes would share the same name but are so completely different in style, Solomon's Revenge is justifiably its own adventure.

Protection 

8 quickdraws and smallish cams or nuts

I finally led this climb. This climb definitely tests your ability to climb run out, commit to small holds and does it all over big exposure. I think there could be a bolt or two added to make it less psychologically demanding.
