Motor out a short series of tiered roofs off the ground to a good stance/rest. Layback/jam the finger crack using the arete to the left to reach a horn. Rest. Crimp up to a short dihedral, then wander up the face to the anchors.


Located next to One-Ten, about a 5 minute walk from Sunset Rock proper, look for a short finger crack to the right.


Thin gear, one bolt (missing), rap rings at the top.

This route would be VERY dangerous to lead without the bolt- you might not hit the ground, but it'd be very close.

Its a shame the bolts missing- its a great route, even if the crux is height dependent. (sorry short folks- this one's HARD if you're little)

Do be careful after the horn until you get to the next rest cause if you wall you will deck. It would suck.

There is good gear just left of the horn, "the TCU placement" the guide suggests. I don't think you would deck falling onto that piece. Bring a few larger pieces to protect the first bit of crack at the crux and the slab above. The crack size is pretty easy to see from the ground.
