Me about to hit the crux.

Reopened after flood damage! MORE INFO >>>


The first route to the right of the cave project (but rumor has it that one of kids from the gym sent the cave route) that starts in a shallow dihedral.

The true crux is 3 or 4 bolts up, but the redpoint crux is being able to clip the anchors.

Anybody know what the cave is rated just to the left? There's a line of bolts starting from the base up to about 10 feet from the top of the cave with anchors. I gave a whirl today and found it to be pretty darn difficult! Probably in the 12+ range maybe? The rock quality on the crimps is a bit sketchy...however, it's very well-protected. Any idea on the name or rating would be great!

It's called "Solitary Confinement" (5.13c) and was bolted by Brett Pierce and FA'd by Alex Reich around 2007. Alex and I checked it out one evening, and he went back and sent it a couple weeks later.
