Description 

And here it is, young evil Jedi, the wall where you prove yourself worthy. Feel it! Breath it in! Let yourself sucumb to the power of The Dark Side! And remember, good guys wear black.

Getting There 

After hopping off the uphill trail you'll find yourself on a flat, fairly wide road. Turn right and start walking up canyon towards the Sunshine Wall Parking lot where you left your vehicle.

About one minute into your walk you'll see a very blonde hunk of rock with three bolts in it. This is the climb known as Erectile Dysfunction and the mostly blonde, Hersey's Kiss shaped rock formation that it is attached to is The Streaker Wall, which is home to some very impressive 5.11's and 5.12's.

If you keep on walking past The Streaker Wall you'll end up at a large section of blonde and black streaked cliff band with imposing 5.12's and 5.13's. If you keep walking to where the cliff band ends you'll end up at a section of wall with a blonde bottom which streaks to the left and moves its way up. This area has a handful of stout 5.11's that might be the best place to start your evil Jedi training before moving down canyon to some of the most difficult climbs in the galaxy.

Don't let the name fool you! This route neither sucks nor blows! Suck To Blow is a beyond-awesome, intermediate climb that may have noobs flailing if a crucial sidepull on a black, boob-like structure isn't used and a crucial undercling in a not-so-obvious spot is not stroked properly.Suck some air in and blow it out, GET YOUR FEET UP! And hang on for the ride of your life! Let yourself get sucked into projecting this one until you are completely blown away by its sheer awesomeness!...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
