Comments: More a variation than an independent climb. Same high quality and stout moves down low as Doin' the Good Drive, then some thoughtful face climbing up high.

Comments: Doing the first five pitches, then traversing to the terrace and rapping the Solar Slab gully, turned out to be a great low-key, low-logistics outing for a short November day. We had sun all day except for a period of about 20 minutes when it briefly went behind the summit of Mt. Wilson.

Comments: This is an excellent climb with very continuous stemming. Sunny, sheltered, and warm. For full credit, start up the left side of the pedestal, instead of scrambling up the right side. Standard rack to #4, emphasizing finger-size gear; there's currently a cam (not ours) stuck just below the roof. The pitch is 110' long; a single 70 gets you to the ground, but a 60 should reach the top of the starting pedestal. One anchor bolt has a Fixe single ring, but the other just ha... more >>
