Mix It Up

Description 

I think this is one of the better routes on the Sunshine Wall. Its got a bit o' everything.

Start out with excellent face climbing which is sustained and technical for the first 5 bolts.

Oh, but don't let your guard down now, time to start placing gear...

Continue up the crack on the right side of the pillar via finger locks and small hands until its possible to move left into a thin crack (small stoppers) near the top.

Top out and belay from the top. Rap off of Bob's your Uncle.

Location 

Last route before the King Pins. Look for a line of 5 bolts that ends about 1/2 way up the face.

Protection 

single set up to 2" mostly finger sized.

This may be the best climb at the King Pins. The slightly overhanging jug finish is classic column-ladder climbing.

Now has its own anchor.
