Description 

This is far and away the best line at Sundown. Unfortunately, I was not able to send. In fact, I'm not sure this line has ever been sent. The landing isn't ideal, its pretty tall, and not exactly clean at the top. A physical and mental test-piece for sure.

There's the potential for about 3 lines on this face. One that goes up the right arete, one that goes up the left, and one that goes from right to left.


Location 

Walk about half a mile. This boulder is on the left. You can't miss it.


Protection 

Many pads

The face was climbed by Dave Jacobson in 1988, he had a name for it but I can't remember what it was. The route started on the left and moved into the thin crack to finish. This was before pads, and I think he might have actually led it using a single tcu placement.

called it "short circuit" I believe ajax greene gave me a belay on this the day after we camped out to get Dead tickets. Needless to say I was alittle hung-over. 1 tcu placement, crux is very similar to the crux of "Yellow Matter Custard" wich I was working on at the time.
