Good route, great way to get up to Solar Slab quickly.

Also keep in mind that this route is the last one on Solar Slab to dry out after a rain. The last two pitches ascend a waterfall which is wet for quite a while after a rain.

Also, the only slung rappel station in the gully was backed up with new webbing on 2.6.05, the rest of the station was replaced sometime in the fall of 2004.

The approach information for this route (and all other routes in the Solar Slab area) is not accurate. In it, the guide says to skip the first branch in the trail and take the second heading into the wash. However, we found that the first trail is in fact much better than the second. While the second heads directly into the wash, the first heads directly along the wall. Going this way elliminates at least 15 minutes to the approach and the hassle of trying scramble through the maze of boulders in the wash.

And oh yeah, the route was okay.
