26m. Start as for Solstice and just after halfway from the curved flake line a thin groove leads directly to the top.

Actually found the lower HVS finger crack harder than the direct finish - but then, I was on top-rope!

Will come back to lead this cheeky beauty

Seconded partner up Solstice, down climbed to the direct finish after taking out last piece of gear and finished up the direct. One committing rock over move and then an easy finish on big holds. Will lead this next time.

Good climbing, got two micros and a micro cam for the top section, between them they may have held a fall, but certainly wouldnt want to test it!

Dale ?/Jul/15 Lead O/S

If solstice original gets two stars this should get two stars. The direct makes the route better and straightens out the line. Feels scary on the lead it is hard to commit to the crux which is a slippery smear and is 5c. The gear at the crux is a joke its just there to slow you down the only good gear is on solstice original. It would be a nasty fall if you blow the crux bouncing off the ledge.

Thought I was climbing a HVS until just before the crux Doug tells us it's actually the E2 variation. Still, great climb!

Seconded with dan some time last year was good to lead. the starts probably the hardest bit to be honest

ianstevens 09/Mar/14 Lead O/S

Lovely climbing, nice and harrowing (character building) in the upper section with some delightful 'slow me down' gear. Probably hard 5b/soft 5c, and far more fun than Solstice.

Seconded Ben on this a while ago. Decided to lead it today, great finishing moves but not hard-a few snappy/ hollow gear placements which you wouldn't want to test perhaps justify the E2 grade.
