Description

The South Face has a longer and trickier approach than other parts of Suicide Rock. However, it has a nice selection of one and two pitch routes. It is in the sun after early morning, and therefore can be a good place to climb in cool weather (even mid-winter).

Getting There

There are two common approaches. One is to hike up the large gully to the left of the Sunshine Face. When the terrain steepens, scramble up near the left side of the gully, scramble through a tunnel, and emerge on walking terrain at the right end of the South Face. The alternative is to hike around to the right side of the rock, then left all the way to the top of the South Face, and finally do a 70 foot rappel down to where the tunnel ends.
