BETA PHOTO: corona... run out 10 crux.. no pro brittle flakes....

Description 

About 30' to the right of Solar Flare, climb a clean, left-facing corner. When the corner gets too smooth, make a delicate step left. There is a bolted anchor a short distance above the overhang. It is possible to move left below the overhang and join the easy crack leading to the second belay on Solar Flare.

Be advised; this climb is 10a/b "r"... someone will get busted up on this climb...the crux is run out on brittle flakes, lateral 10 feet... and up 10 feet from corner where last pro is... result would be a pendulum (most likely upside down) into corner. The sandstone flakes will give. Would be a quality climb with the addition of one bolt (IMHO).....

"There is a bolted anchor a short distance above the overhang." Can you get to the ground with one rope from this anchor? Looking for descent or pitch length info.
