Description [Edit]

This once was one of the better 60-foot sport routes of its grade in Washington, before the pillar it ascended toppled over on April 28, 2017. It climbed an overhanging arete through a combination of left hand arete pulling and right hand edge cranking. The story behind the route's name is recounted in Jim Nelson's Selected Climbs of the Cascades, Vol. II.

Location [Edit]

Was on a leaning pillar to the left of Orange Sunshine.

Protection [Edit]

7 bolts.
