Comments: General info:

Approach takes about one hour if there is a good trail. Approximately 1.8 miles and 1,000 vertical feet gained to base of route.

Sun all day! Unless cloudy of course…. LOL

190 feet to the top (give or take). One pitch if all ice, maybe two if mixed….
Rap route with two 60m ropes from tat around tree… bring extra cord/rap rings to replace existing if needed.

Comments: Fun Fun Fun….but still so hard……..

For me, double set of Master Cams (blue-orange), I also use a BD 0.3 and 0.4. Save a baby blue for the top.

Comments: What a super-fun line. Went back for another jog last weekend. For me it starts with big hands, goes to super raptly hands (thank goodness the start is easy) then the meat of the climb is glorious fists for me. Mostly big BD #3 but a couple of BD #3.5 works too. I don't think the new BD #4 fits……

A 70 meter rope doesn't work unless you use many tricks…….. we were way too short but had a tag line along so no problem.

Comments: Yes it is pretty short but super fun moves and great rests. The route gobbles gear in the thin hands range. The first roof/flake/step-around is fun and not too hard. Look around…..its all there. The final bulge is the meat of the climb…….much steeper than it looks, but there are plenty of good (deep) hand jams……you will just loose your feet for a move or two. Fun route!

Comments: The anchor has two bolts!

Fun route. Dont be discourage cause it looks dirty up there (you don't climb that way!!!…… start in the bombay type slot and after about 15 feet or so step/ chimney/stem right and pull over the fun flake. Pay attention to gear placement and use long slings. An old #4 is useful at the top.

Comments: Yesterday was my first time climbing Solar Slab. Did it in one pitch in one hour. A perfect fun outing.
A few notes:
Pro can be found early on pitch one if one is looking.
Be careful when passing the exit of Arch Enemy on pitch 2, lots of loose rock.
The rest of the route is kind of a blur, super easy climbing, lots of good gear.
All stations have good bolts but no chains (except for P1 and P7 if I remember correctly)……lots of old tat….. bring extra webbing just in case you need to back up a st... more >>

Comments: Yep pitch two is a rope eater when rapping. I highly recommend rapping Jupiter. Super clean. However, the last rap leaves you 15 feet shy of the ground if you use a 70m rope….. I didn't find the down climbing that easy…… but maybe I was just tired……

I thought pitch two was glorious. Super fun body position. I didn't think the thin dihedral was that desperate……in fact I got a no hands rest in the "crux". I thought the balancy and reachy moves on pitch four being the most desperate on the whole c... more >>

Comments: Such a fun and exciting climb.

Two 60m ropes work perfectly for the raps. Just head right at the top for maybe 50ft to the second rap tree. Rap to huge tree on ledge. Another rap to ground. Easy and straightforward.

Comments: This is sooooooo super fun!!! Another one of my faves at this wall. Although not in the same league as Curiosity……. but nothing is.
A few BD#0.5 followed by several BD#0.75, with a BD#1 finish.

Comments: It looks like an OW but it doesn't climb like one. Really fun stemming and chimney style climbing. Maybe one BD#5…….
The crux is leaving the ground…… the rest is pretty easy.
Use common sense when pulling the rope!!!! For very very obvious reasons.
