Description [Suggest Change]

Okay, it may be a bit controversial to enter these routes, but the rock is on NP land, and they've been described in various guidebooks.

This is a modest route on an moderately obscure rock. It follows the blunt, south ridge for a few hundred feet. Not a destination climb, but if you are there....

Find the approximate nadir of the rock. This does require some scrambling.

P1. Ascend a nice, low-angled crack with some brief stemming. There is a chockstone on the right at the crux. 170'. 5.7.

P2. The crux of this pitch seems to be right off the belay, 7+, little pro. Then dance up a fun face section, perhaps PG-13. Save a #3 & #3.5 Camalot for the belay. 200'. 5.7+.

P3. Drop down into a slot/chimney, move over to the slab and cruise up easier terrain to a 2 bolt anchor. 110'. 5.5.

You can rap off the anchor to the west into a slot and down. You may be able to continue another pitch to the top of the Sunshine Daydream anchor and rap.

Location [Suggest Change]

This starts at the lowest point of the south edge of the rock.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A lighter rack up to #3.5 Camalot. 200' rope helps.
