The start on Pebble Power, Sandrock...take some lo...

Description 

A great, pumpy lead that will test your willpower! Juggy holds and horns help to compensate for the lack of any rest stances for placing gear on the steadily overhanging conglomerate wall. Just keep moving! You'll want to be really solid at the grade before trying this one.

Location 

At the far east end of the Sun Wall; starts 20' right of Mobile Launcher.

Protection 

Plentiful placements for medium gear, with some good horns to sling as well. Save some bigger stuff for building an anchor at the top.

I really like this little route, and I'm glad it hasn't been bolted up. The pro was great, although like the description says, you're not getting any rest stances to place it. Other than a single yellow Mastercam, I think we did it with stoppers and horn slinging.

It is strange there's no anchor at the top, though. I slung a couple of the horns and belayed from the top, but some might not be comfortable with that setup.
