The AMC Wall is one of the premiere walls of Sunshine. It is steep and sports several powerful lines, ranging from 11b to 13a.

Getting There 

Once you reach the main trail at the base of the cliff (you'll be standing at the base of Astropop, 11b), take a left and walk about 3 minutes or so. The AMC Wall is the next main wall after the big, black slab.

Good to hear from you. I am glad you still care about us since you are a big wig law dog in NYC. You are correct about the Straight Six route. It starts more or less on the Encore holds then moves left into the line and climbs right of the Cross Country flake. Next time you are back look me up an I will show you the new stuff we are working on. Also if anybody knows how to get hold of Curt Love please let me know. I need some Mexico info.
