Looks promising!


The arch crack in the boulder starts left and follows the ramp and undercling up to the roof and traverses right under the roof for a downclimb. A good quicky to warm-up your trad game before hitting the Wall of Solitude.
Alternatively, you can top out the roof on licheny slopers to a tree. This is called "Trad problem in the Sky" (R-rated)


On the trail between Hanging Chain Right and Wall of Solitude. SE facing.


As many cams as you'd like. Maybe a nut if you do the Alt.
