Laura leading Solstice 5.7 at Maple Wall


Begin just right of the blank roof. Climb the big jugs up the ever so slightly overhanging arete and roofs. Continue up through the crux to the left facing flake. Finish on easier face climbing above.

Climbed this route in late Oct '14 and encountered a large host of wasps. There were about a dozen and thankfully they let me finish the route. I didn't notice any nests.

I have to agree with a majority of the suggested ratings on this one (and check out the comments on people's ticks for this climb): there are definitely some moves that are harder than a 7+, and with a good chance of a ledge fall to boot. A fun, three-star climb, but I would not recommend it for a new leader.
