Description

Though not as good as its neighbor to the right, Sun Burn offers enjoyable moves on decent rock. Begin on dark rock with a tough gaston move right off the ground. Traverse right, then up on good holds to seam/crack feature right of the bolt line. A big reach from an undercling and some dynamic stabs will get you to a set of slopey crimps, where it will be necessary to traverse back left (crux) to a large, obvious hole. From the hole, traverse left, then up on good jugs, and a double-kneebar rest. Higher up the route slabs out, but there is still one difficult, technical section that guards the anchor.

Location

Left of Jump Start, or second route right of Heat Stroke.

I'd say this route is the best 12a on the sunny side, even better than jump start. Nov 19, 2014
