Solar King, 5.11a

Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


With a one-move crux close to the ground, Solar King is an easy .11a tick, especially if you nail the right sequence of tips jams and stems. The climbing eases to 5.9 after the start, but remains fun throughout, capped by a small overhang.


To the right of Orange Sunshine and a big leaning pillar.


Good RPs and/or tiny wireds protect the start. Cams up to a #1 Camalot for the rest.
