Description

Climb the left side of the scenic sunset face, with excellent views of the ocean if you ever take a chance to turn around on this climb.

This is an excellent 5.9, with many good yet hidden holds all the way up the route. There are also rests galore, due to the slabbyness of the face.

Protection

Don't fall if you're bouldering.

To set up a top rope, there are three bolts that hang directly above this route. Bring two slings, one 8' and another 6' for a backup. To access the top, you must climb one of several access routes, which range from 5.2 to 5.7.

This is more of a 5.9 route than a boulder problem. It is usually top-roped but it can be led reasonably safely with a few small nuts and cams. The last placement is a bit flaring and takes a small cam as well as a small nut which should hold a short fall. For a lead I would rate it 5.9 PG. Oct 27, 2008

Sunset Face is a fun route that could be led with 2 or 3 decent small stoppers. I think it's pretty easy for the grade as compared to other routes listed in the Falcon Guide.The face to the right is also fun going at about the same grade. But eliminating the right arete and all verticle cracks with climbing just horizontal face holds makes for a great thin face climb. Delicate balancy moves are required and may be a 10a/b grade.
