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.
Routes listed from left to right as you face the wall.
Electric Koolaid Ocean- 5.6- 5 bolts to anchor, 20 meter rappel. Great one for beginners. Herbivore Dance- 5.5- 4 bolts smearing to anchor, 20 meter rappel. Same. Iron Eclipse- 5.8- 6 bolts to anchor, crux is the start, 16 meter rappel.

If you have information about this route that doesn't pertain to any of the other sections, please add it here.
""You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know.""
