A really cool solo, not to bad is Funhouse LH then go across the easy ledge and finish p2  3 birches..5.8 all the way.

or Across the Universe..bring a tag line for p2 short crux..drag it up the Milkey Way and make 4 raps down off bolts  They are fine for a slab rap..you'll live..shit i did it when they where 1/4"

Or 3 Birches from the bottom. Although I remember working it a bit on the top. Lotsa pine needles.

Here's a short piece I wrote about a solo. Wouldn't call it my finest solo, though: http://jayknower.blogspot.com/2014/03/pause-for-whisper.html

Great writing, Jay.

Many years ago on a visit to JT, maybe mt first or second we were looking around for boulders since we both sucked at bouldering..two ripped dudes were falling off a small seam thing.   I finished my beer and WALKED it..way easy  ( it was maybe V1-2)

it may not really be a real solo, but in JT a lot of boulders are
