Hard moves up short crack with good pro get you to another short section of crack. From the ledge follow bolts left on to fun overhanging face. Originally lead by Jim Scott but he stayed right and climbed easy rock to top with no pro after the cracks. Much more fun to do with the bolts on the steep face.


Starts ten 15 feet right of Red Dwarf


Cams to hand jam size. Bolts

This route is quite contrived (hence only 1 star) but nevertheless extremely fun and well worth doing if you're at Sun Spots. The top section is remarkably airy.

I'm not sure the #2 cam in the second crack would actually hold? Maybe if you placed it deep enough it would start tracking through the kitty litter and eventually stop before falling out? Not sure.

edit: Doubled it up w/ a #3 and didn't test it but psychologically that seemed to do the trick as far as moving past that section
