Description Suggest change

The Sunshine Face is the premiere wall at Suicide and offers stellar face climbing up to three pitches in length.

There are some nice cracks here but the main appeal is thin face climbing. Those enjoying the art of slab climbing will be rewarded with gems such as Sundance (5.10b), Valhalla (5.11a), Iron Cross (5.11a), New Generation (5.11c), Moondance (5.11c) and Ishi (5.12d).

Getting There Suggest change

Hike left past the (l) Buttress of Cracks to reach this wall which sits just above and slightly right of the Smooth Sole Wall.
