Kianna working Sunshine. A good name for her also.

Description 

A short moderate sport climb that has always held the masses at Military, being one of few 'soft' warm-ups at the cliff.
The crux of this, the center of the 3 bolted lines in this short section is not so much any individual move, but the pump associated with finishing the route.


Location 

From the main approach Trail go left to a short area of the wall, steep and pocketed. There are presently 3 sport routes there. From right to left these are: Into the Light (10c), Sunshine (9+) and Moonbeam (9).


Protection 

5 clips to a bolt and chain anchor.

Oh come on. This climb deserves lotsa stars. It's super pumpy for beginners, super consistent at the grade, and there isn't a single thing about it that a person could find objectionable besides the fact that it could be twice as long and, thus, twice as fun. It's a fine piece of rock climbing goodness.
