Climb the dihedral to the right of Sunset Face. The crux is surmounting a small overhang. This is a well protected lead. The anchor should be built by gear and can be backed up with long slings to the bolts above Sunset Face.


Several cams and nuts to 1 inch.

There's anchors...two ring'd bolts right around the mantle.

there are two bomber bolts above the "roof"
big eyes and epoxied in place. good for setting up a simple anchor and/or for rapping off.

if you veer right at the roof, it's an easier climb

other than the move at the roof, the climb is 5.6-ish and fun
