Approach

The Solstice and Heart and Sole (msp) are across the creek from First Rock (east side). From First Rock cross the bridge and immediately start ascending a faint trial up the hill to your left that leads up to a cliff on Heart Mountain’s west slope. Heart and Sole (msp) is the first set of routes you come to and several minutes further south around the corner is The Solstice. These are all smearing type routes.
