Starts on the face just left of The Burn. Climb up to a bolt and then continue on the the Ecstasy Junior belay ledge.


Standard rack with an emphasis on tiny gear.

Great route...tiny nut work is necesary to keep you from decking before clipping that bolt about 30(?) feet up. Aug 7, 2007

It was quite an adventure when I first lead Sunshine in 1975... we didn't have the cool gear that's around these days.. so I lead it onsight, with little square wire stoppers.... I'm was 16 at the time.. so that helped.. :)and fear always helps... cheers Jesse Guthrie Oct 2, 2008

I've always wanted to do this one...Jesse - did you add the bolt or was that added later? I assume not since you were so young :) Sep 30, 2010

Lots of good TCU/C3s for the first 15 feet and solid gear after the bolt. It is definitely runout IF you don't bring a bunch of brass before the bolt. Like many other routes of the grade at Seneca, you ought to be a confident 10+ leader to do this safely - it's consistent and sustained at the grade until after the roof. Sep 16, 2013

Red C3 and a small wire protected the crux for me. Clipping the bolt was the scariest part. Apr 1, 2018
The bolt was just recently replaced (Oct '18) by Tom Cecil. It was quite rusted, so thanks to Tom for that. Oct 15, 2018
