I lead Blonde Ambition, as my friend Jeff leads Se...
This sustained moderate is a three-star classic, with solid protection and fun moves all the way. Probably the best for the grade at Sunset -- don't miss it!
Start with face climbing to a small overhang, then follow a crack system to the top.
Starts about 10' right of Second Sun.
Small to medium gear. Bolted anchors.

hard to find, its the right hand of the two obvious routs on this wall.
no gear for the first 20' or so, the climbing is probably 5.5-5.6.

I managed to plug several pieces in the first 20 feet or so, all smaller cams.
From about 20 feet to 30 feet up, however, there is no gear. Not hard terrain, but you don't want to slip up or you're taking a little ride on the slab.
Phenomenal route, the crack is great fun, it's a constant 5.7 with few good rests and even fewer jams, almost all face business. Great fun.
"Best 7 in the state" according to the Craggers Atlas..? I still love Jay Walker, but that may be my T-Wall bias.
This is a great route.

Not sure if I was tired or what but I didn't find this route to be great, I found Jugular Vein to be the better 5.7 on this wall.

There were a couple of challenges leading this. I climbed it again on TR after leading and thought it was a total blast. Felt it probably really is 5.7+. Protects well for the most part - mostly small to medium gear and some nuts. Used a red C3 and a red DMM offset nut. Very fun Crack system.
