Description

The very last, but not the least, of the areas you will encounter as you turn right at the treverse trail you will stumble upon when reaching the top of the trail that leads up the hill and through the woods from the Sunshine parking lot.

This place is money, baby! Great, overhung thuggy routes that don't have a monetary value above 5.12b are stored in the piggy bank full of surprises.

If you came to Sunshine to work your ass off for great reward, and get a serious beat down in return, this place is worth the investment.

Getting There

Once you arrive at the base of Astro-Pop, turn right. There is a sign for The Snext Wall. Head past the Snext Wall and keep walking towards the Light Bulb Buttress. Once you reach the Light Bulb Buttress take a breather and a water break...and then start walking, and walking and walking and walking some more. When you finally run out of cliff band, keep walking past a scree field. Work your way down the hill and stay low to avoid twisting your ankles on the loose rocks. You will hike past an odd, tiny island of rock that is actually part of the cliff system and not a boulder. Down low you will see some large boulders and you might even pass a cabin that is close to the road. Keep walking and walking some more. A bright, yellow band of cliff will soon pop out at you if you persevere. The first route you will stumble upon is a killer 5.10a with a blocky start. The rest of the climbs pull through a jagged, steep roof system.

A great place to go if you wanna get away from the crowds at The Big Black Face and be assured some well-deserved privacy...to play Pocket Pool...and get on some other really fun, demanding routes.
