Description

This crag has several good trad routes on solid varnished rock.

Getting There

Follow the main trail into Icebox Canyon. The trail soon passes beneath the main Sunnyside Crag, then drops into the streambed. As you continue upstream, there is a band of cliffs on the right (northern) side of the canyon. The key landmark is a dark varnished wall with a huge square roof on its right side.

These routes are actually pretty good. Nice place to get out of the wind. Sort of slabby, but with good rock. The anchor atop the two routes on the right is a bit funky (perhaps more than a bit)---it's kind of like rapping off a coral reef. Apr 28, 2014
