The left-most route on the Solarium. Follows an amazing, sinuous dyke up the slab. Very aesthetic.
Fun slab climbing. The second-from-the-left slab route at the Solarium. Bring some medium to wide cams for the start.
Kinda' bold. Some hefty spaces between bolts kept me engaged, but the cruxes were high and better protected. A Solarium route that’s probably not climbed very often...
With Matt into the night
Adventurous! Not nearly as well travelled as Angel's Crest, so route-finding issues come into play. Steeper than expected with many burly and odd cruxes including the "yew-tree crawl" and the "birthing slot". A big approach and big descent makes for a full day. Good training for alpine objectives!
Classic sky cragging starts off of ledge on top of the 2nd pitch of Krimo Gold and is Parallel to Zappa Crack. Wide 5.10 start to a ledge, the steep leaning layback is the crux but there is no real rest before launching out the wicked underclings across the steep wall, finishes in an awesome position along the arete. although the protection is abundant care must be taken to protect the early crux above the ledge, hanging on to place the gear accounts for much of the difficulty. Thanks Tony Chan!
proudest trad experience onsighting this line, laserfocus. stars aligned for sending weather, good times with ewolff and send samosas. beginning of the most epic climbing week in my life.
Awesome day! The crux pitch felt burly!
