Super Ego (Left) and Flight of the Ego (Right).

Description 

a fairly easy route with no real tough spots. the crux is likely clipping the second bolt without taking a ground fall. there is a short left facing corner mid way up that could prove tricky, but is great if you ignore the gigantic triangular over chalked hold, and get your feet up. above that the route wanders for another clip or two over to some shared anchors. watch yourself as a fall from this easy terrain could be painful.

Location 

this route is on the path after the solstice cave in a little alcove that houses three routes. it's obvious that a naturally protected route follows the obvious weakness on the left wall, while the two bolted routes are on the right wall. Ego is the middle of the three.

Protection 

bolts to shared anchors.

CONDITION REPORT 
Small but active wasps nest in bush to left of 5th bolt. I took a few stings to the face before moving right. Followers avoided being stung by moving right quickly after bypassing the bulge.

This is a great warmup route for South Clear if you're climbing 5.10 or harder. Fun, interesting, mellow, and almost never anyone on it.

This climb is the best for its grade at South Clear. It has great movements on it and makes for the perfect warm-up/cool-down.
