BETA PHOTO: Rising Sun topo
On the far left hand side of the Left Wall, this pitch climbs a chunky right facing diehedral with "2" cracks up high. Climb blocky rock to wavering hands and finger crack. After the crux up high, instead of moving left into gnarly left facing dihedral, move right onto the face and follow thin crack, and good horizontal holds to the anchor of Ninja Warrior.
In it's current condition it is pretty chossy and dirty. If someone took the hour or two to clean it up and trundle all the loose rock, this pitch could turn into a decent little warm up, and I doubt the grade would change.
On the far left hand side of the LEFT Wall, locate two distinct right facing dihedrals and a prominent and clean arete in between them. Rising Sun is the blocky dihedral on the left.
Doubles to 2" TCU and Camalot, Large/medium/small wires. Runners. Chain anchor with fixed biners.

This route has been cleaned up and is probably the best warmup on the left wall (felt easier than Flashflood). Starts off juggy and fun... gets harder as you go up. Hero climbing on good gear! Avoid the temptation to stay left, rather do the enjoyable, exposed, but easy traverse to the Ninja Warrior anchors.

I agree with Joel, Rising Sun is great stuff and much easier than FF. Kind of blocky to start, but plenty of fun moves above. The last moves that traverse right onto the arete are great and offer some nice exposure.
