Climb up the bulge 10 feet to the left of the Ramp. Climbing is straightforward, with the crux topping out.

This is really overhung, but so is just about everything else on mortar rock! Moves are reachy, but all the hand holds are excellent.

Serious rating is because of the landing being in the base of a large tree (that's really slippery when wet) and a not so nice rock just beneath it.


A crash pad, a few spotters, and awarness that there's a tree and a big rock where you're going to need to bailout.

are you refering to the problem called sunshine? i heard it goes at a v5 v6 and begins as a sit start on two decent side pulls in the same direction at the base of the bulge.... then up to the bear hug and smiley, and the rose move jug, to the top out... same thing or totally different beast?

Next time I'm up there, I'll have a look. I think the thing that I was talking about was slightly left of there, and was a stand start. The name I "gave" it was discriptive, rather than an official name. If this is Sunshine, and it's a sit start, I'll gladly rename it on the site. May 10, 2006

I can't believe this only gets one star! The moves are fun and the top out is exciting. Definitely helps to have a spotter on this one! Sep 2, 2009

I'm gonna assume that this is actually the stand start to Sunshine, which I feel like goes at V4. Nov 16, 2014
If "the crux is topping out" I take that this is referring to Sunshine stand, which i feel is more like a V4. Apr 27, 2015

I'd give this a V4R based on the difficulty of moves vs The Ramp. Different sequence that might be slightly less physically demanding per individual moves, but more hand movements on a reachy overhang. Underrated problem IMO. Jul 27, 2017
