There are a few ways to begin this route, all of which lead to a very large ledge about 20' off the deck. Climb up another 10' or so until you hit a small roof. From here, you have the choice to begin climbing up the leftcrack or the rightcrack. If you decide the rightcrack, the move that positions you over the small roof and into the main crack is the crux. Once in the main crack, layback and head to the top!
Just left of The Diamond, one of the first routes you come to after descent from Sunset Rock proper. Route is situated in a corner with two slightly overhung and obvious crack systems that share anchors: Righthand Crack and Lefthand Crack.
Standard rack. Anchors w/rings. Can be accessed from top for top-roping.
Tim about to hit the crux.

Tried this out all day today. As a relatively new trad climber, this was a particularly versatile route with lots of awesome pro placements. Its located towards the end of the walls on the trail, so there was a lotta excitement built up when we finally got there. Nice bolted route on the left, excellent crack right up the center, and a face climb on the right. Great for toprope too. Needless to say, this playground easily took up hours of the day with all the fun, and I got pretty worn out at the end. Unfortunately, I had a little "wobbly" trouble cleaning the last of my placements, so for whoever's interested, there's a shiny new BD stopper (#9) to the left of the nose on the corner crack ;) great climb, rave weather! Lots of little black ants tho. Cheers!
