Description

The Sunny Side is one long cliffband, but by convention, it is described as two separate crags. The right half of the cliff is known as the "Sunny Side", and the left side is known as "The Dig".

The right end of the Sunny Side offers the best rock and climbing at the Tunnel, with a number of high quality 5.12s, and several 5.13a's. Most routes are slightly overhanging and crimpy at the start, vertical with big jugs in the middle, and slabby with unnerving slopers at the end.

This crag faces slightly west, and depending on the season, gets anywhere from 1 hour to half a day of shade (less shade closer to winter solstice).

From Right to Left, routes are:
1. Burn Baby Burn, 5.11b
2. Dehydration, 5.10d
3. Biggus Diccus, 5.12d
4. Melanoma, 5.12d
5. Sunspot, 5.12c
6. The NIMBY Factor, 5.13a
