Description

Follow the main Turret Dome directions. When you're at the base of the slab, it is about as obvious as can be. Per Jerry Cagle: just before the climber's trail dumps you back down into the river (dependent upon water levels), you'll encounter a low-angle, lightly featured slab of white granite (note: a very short distance before reaching Sunshine Slab you'll encounter a much easier, highly featured slab that is sometimes mistaken for SS.) Sprint upwards. Gear is a bother, you have to move to the far right or left side of the slab. I suggest the old fashioned solo. 

At the start of the bathtubs (you'll recognize them) move right into the gully & finish. If you ascend the bathtub area, you'll encounter harder climbing than 5.0, but there are a couple ways to get off keeping it 5.4 (see the finish for Schooldaze or traverse right below the final summit overhang & do some down climbing).

As per Climbnh: Sunshine slabs is a 3 pitch climb and we stretched it with 70m ropes

Protection

Medium to large gear, but a solo is suggested.
