Me working out the tricky top section.


The first route to the right of the cave project (but rumor has it that one of kids from the gym sent the cave route) that starts in a shallow dihedral.

The true crux is 3 or 4 bolts up, but the redpoint crux is being able to clip the anchors.

Anybody know what the cave is rated just to the left? There's a line of bolts starting from the base up to about 10 feet from the top of the cave with anchors. I gave a whirl today and found it to be pretty darn difficult! Probably in the 12+ range maybe? The rock quality on the crimps is a bit sketchy...however, it's very well-protected. Any idea on the name or rating would be great!

It's called "Solitary Confinement" (5.13c) and was bolted by Brett Pierce and FA'd by Alex Reich around 2007. Alex and I checked it out one evening, and he went back and sent it a couple weeks later.
