Sun Salute has a great steep juggy first half, a more vertical crack/face climbing finish. This climb shares a lot of climbing, including the start and finish, with the easier sections of "Solar Gain" (5.12c).
Start at the right side of the alcove. Climb up and pull through numerous blocky roofs on great holds; you don't normally don't get to climb roofs this steep for the 5.11- grade! So good! After the steeps, don't continue up the slick bolted arete: this is "Solar Gain" 5.12c. Instead, step left to a finger crack and climb up that. At the top of the finger crack, move out right, and climb a finger crack through the final headwall.
This climb starts at the right side of the white alcove.
