Description

Very nice sport area with several very good, moderate to easy, limestone sport routes on the far left side of the Sunshine wall. Wall is south facing but with ample shade from several large trees. Climbs are on very featured and pocketed black rock. Most of the cruxes are on steeper rock low on the routes with the exception being Bugs Bunny that has a crux at the midway point. All routes have fixed anchors with closed cold shuts or chains so you will have to re-tie in at the top. Probably the highest concentration of easy climbing in the canyon. The Cruxes are short and the rests are many, but the climbing remains fun.

Getting There

Either one of two approaches will get you there. You can go up the trail to Sunshine and follow the trail to the left. The other way is to go to the thunderhead and go to the right up the hill for about 50 yards after getting to the cliff. I like the latter approach if this is your only destination for the day as it seems easier.

In case "take the trail left" isn't helpful enough, I'm gathering the way is to take the main trail to the first wall, go left past many walls including attitude wall, amc wall, "euphamiah-beresford-memorial-wall" and then bunny slope is next. There's another trail that is faint and is described in the approach for the euphamiah wall. Aug 30, 2014
The trail that you are thinking is "faint" is actually the Butt Rocks trail. In 2014 there was trail work done by the BHCC to clear trees off the trail caused by a massive snowstorm (Oct. 2013). It is quite clear to follow and easy to read since the removal of the debris. Jul 18, 2015
