Description Suggest change

Originally reported as "Right Sunny Niner (5.9)" in the R&I 80 (8/97) mini-guide, this short romp appears as a 5.7 in the 2001 Bernard Gillett guide. Whichever, the quality of the route is no less diminished and you'll find wonderfully varied rock along its four bolt course.

Gravestone can be found on the West side of the Catacomb (right side when descending the Catacomb trail), about half way down the Sepulcher Formation. The start can be identified by a large flake standing in front of the Sepulcher which appears as a wide tombstone when viewed from above.

The start begins behind this flake, then climb up easy shelves to the first bolt, and follow 3 bolts of crystal pinching and Needles-like knob grabbing. The anchor is off to the left above the steep climbing, a two bolt affair shared with The Mausoleum. Rap 40' to the ground.

4 bolts to a two bolt anchor.
