Fighting the pump on Sunbeam

Description 

Climb the same start as Moonshine. Stay left of the arete for a difficult roof pull. Clip the long SS cable hanging from the bolt and make very strenuous moves to get established above the roof. Follow pumpy slots and horizontals to the anchor.

Beware the crux has ledge fall potential without a watchful belay.

Location 

At the head of the trail on the left side of an arete. It has a long SS cable on the first bolt on the large ledge. A 50 or 60m rope will work.

Protection 

Draws for 7 bolts. Rap anchors at the top.
