I liked this route as much as Broken Chicken Wing.

Isn't this route named "I Won't Be Owned"?

"Broley" should be "Brolley." Although Barry would never say anything....

'Isn't this route named "I Won't Be Owned"?' Yakuza is a William Gibson reference, as is Mona Lisa Overdrive

Could use a bolted anchor at the top, the rap tree is dead and rotting. Nice climb!

When did Barry do this route, because Joe and I went up it in Jan '03 and I didn't see any signs of anyone having been on it? Just curious not instigating.

Solar Collector was an established crag when I moved to Lexington in 2000. I don't know for sure but my guess is it was done before 2003.

It has bolted anchors now.

Thanks for hooking it up goodguy.

pretty fun.. little adventuresome but, despite how bad the rock might look, nothing broke or crumbled at all.. and the anchors are definitely appreciated. thanks goodguy..

Fun and adventurous.

pretty cool route and easier than it looks. love the way the wall appears to be sliding past the main solar collector wall.

interesting climbing and very casual for 5.9
rjackson said on December 19th, 2011
So much fun! I didn't think that any hueco was harder than any other. Bring a couple of big pieces or be prepared to run it out in a couple of spots.

This is much much easier than it looks; 7 maybe 8.

The anchors have 1/4" chain. Not the most inspiring. I'm going to change the whole setup next time I'm out there, so long as no one has objections. If it's your gear, let me know and I'll get the scraps back to you.

If you don’t announce it did it ever really happen?

Do you mind mailing me the chain back? Ill PM you.
