Sun Gypsy gets two stars for the interesting and varied moves through each of the three overhangs. The best part of the climb is the top, while the bottom is marked by a number of large ledges between short faces. Climb the left side of the block to a large ledge beneath the first overhang. A medium-sized cam protects the moves up to the second large ledge beneath overhang number two. Work your feet up the left wall and use a couple of good holds on the right side to pull over. Similar climbing leads through the third overhang. Finish up a corner, exit right, and rappel off trees to descend. This is probably not the best candidate for a beginning leader because of the potential to hit a ledge beneath each of the overhangs.
Climbs the corner above and to the left of the old tree trunk through the namesake overhangs.
