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.

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..

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

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.
