Launching up Static Cling


This is a great sustained route just left of Sendero Luminoso and right of Morning Wood. It starts with steep juggy rock and slowly gets harder until steep technical face pulling past a small roof at the 7th and 8th bolts. Just after the crux step left then continue up past easier but great climbing.


On the south face of the Solarium, starts just right of Morning Wood.


11 bolts to hooks. Lower off with one 60 meter rope, stay to the right and watch the end of the rope. This belay anchor provides another option for people descending from Morning Wood or Sendero Luminoso.

FA was by Tony Sartin. Good addition to the cliff. Cleaned up nicely and quickly.

This route was established in April 2008 by Tony Sartin and Terri Condon. We named it Static Cling and it actually has 11 bolts, with the crux being after the 8th bolt. We rated it 11b, but consensus seems to be 11a by the locals. It has cleaned up really nice and is seeing alot of traffic!

I accidentally got on this thinking it was something else. Was really surprised about the quality. Super sweet route!

Great route. Have led this several times and always find the crux to be making a clip after climbing above the roof.
