Starts on the face just left of The Burn. Climb up to a bolt and then continue on the the Ecstasy Junior belay ledge.


Standard rack with an emphasis on tiny gear.

Follow the thin left facing corner below the climber and follow the broken crack down, that's the first half (-/+) of Sunshine.
Follow the thin left facing corner below the climb...

Great route...tiny nut work is necesary to keep you from decking before clipping that bolt about 30(?) feet up.

It was quite an adventure when I first lead Sunshine in 1975... we didn't have the cool gear that's around these days.. so I lead it onsight, with little square wire stoppers.... I'm was 16 at the time.. so that helped.. :)and fear always helps... cheers Jesse Guthrie

I've always wanted to do this one...Jesse - did you add the bolt or was that added later? I assume not since you were so young :)

Lots of good TCU/C3s for the first 15 feet and solid gear after the bolt. It is definitely runout IF you don't bring a bunch of brass before the bolt. Like many other routes of the grade at Seneca, you ought to be a confident 10+ leader to do this safely - it's consistent and sustained at the grade until after the roof.
