DescriptionSunblessed is a very high quality three pitch climb, popular for its memorable second pitch hand crack. Begin at a bolted dike in the center of the wall.
P1: Punch it up the dike at run out 5.9 to the first of a series of bolts. Continue up and then traverse right along the dike at 5.10 to a ramp and the base of a beautiful splitter.
P2: Ascend the steep thin-hands crack for 120 feet to a low-angle ramp and belay. 5.10b.
P3: Head up and around to the right on easy terrain, then continue up the corner vie stemming and face holds initially and then better jams. 5.10b(+).
There are several variations/link-ups that alter the upper pitches. Rap the route (2 60m ropes or one 70m).
