Description

The Stems and Seeds area includes many of the Sunshine Wall's more popular (and more awesome) routes like Stems and Seeds (11c), Air Guitar (10b), and George and Martha (10a). As it is part of the Sunshine Wall, it usually tends to be sunny, although it can get windy.

Getting There

Traverse about 150 feet further left past the Twin Cracks area to reach the right end of the Stems and Seeds Area.

only 2 routes out of order:

Corner pockets is a little confusing, it is the next crack right of Split Beaver. Between the 2 routes Justified Ancients is bolts up a pillar for 1 pitch then continues on a column that is right of Corner Pockets for it's 2nd pitch and a variation continues past that 2nd pitch anchor to the top ( Acapulco Gold, 5.11b)
