Description 

A good warmup climb for the area. Located on the sunny side where the trail joins the wall. Follow a thin crack, edges and pockets to an anchor with bolts separted by 2-3ft. (bring long slings for TR) A harder variation (5.9) avoids the crack on the thin face to the right.

Sungrazer has a nice little crux near the start that allowed my daughter to try out a heel hook to get past it. (Heel hook not necessary, but might help if you're short).
