Not bad. Would be nicer if it was some other route. Last bolt can be skipped with no ill effects. Top is loose, so watch your bean while blabbing at the base.

Fun in the Sun is an excellent route with great stemming and footwork. No need for power, just good footwork. Definitely, a climb deserving more attention. Clean and well protected.

Kinda cool stemming down low, a low-angled section in the middle to a brief but steep finish make this an ideal warm-up for the wall.
