Shares start with Native Rituals; go right at second bolt and pull through technical crux below bulge and then power over bulge.
Shares Anchor with NR... could use some chain but doesn't seem to twist the rope.


Right side of Solar Cave, two to right of Clovis Hunter, shares first two bolts with Native Rituals.

Lance bolted this, not sure if Ian was involved and I got the FFA after their hard work with Lance's permission. Also it finishes at the original Clovis Hunter anchor and not the Native Ritual anchor though it would not really make a difference either way.

Great route! Wandering face climbing to burly underclinging crux moves.

Looks like a new direct start. Anybody have any information on it???

This direct start adds a little pump, but no real change in the grade. It also allows someone to climb Native Rituals at the same time.

Direct start adds fun steep climbing with little chance for recovery before launching into the meat of the route. It felt solid at 12d.
