The Left Over Bun is a rather large boulder that offers relatively few opportunities for climbing. Most of the routes are lower 5th class and well protected making it a nice stop for beginning leaders. The top has easy "walk up" access making it ideal for top rope setups. I've included descriptions of routes on three adjacent rocks on this area, since each has only a couple of climbs. I don't know if the rocks with Lumpy Rump and Heart of Sharpness even have names.

Getting There 

Immediately west of Sugarbun. Easily identified by a large curving chimney (Smokestack) on it's West side.

Climbing Season

For the Sugarloaf area.

Weather station 10.2 miles from here

A climbing move or two gets you to the start of a curving chimney. Pass several chockstones that offer opportunities for gear inside the chimney. Near the top, either climb deeper into the chimney and burrow through to the top, or stay on the outer edge for the more difficult finish to the anchors. Enough protection can be found along the way to keep you going, but you won't be sewing this one up where ever you'd like. It's a good introduction to climbing in chimneys. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
