This route is... well... okay. Slightly steep jugs give way to easier, ledgy climbing and a big shelf with the anchors. This route is kinda dirty and unremarkable, save for the cool homemade bolt hanger near the top (don't clip, just look!)


Walk past the Sun Tower and past a large roof with two bolted lines, looking for a huge fallen pine tree. The Bastard Son is the lone route on a face just to the right of the tree.


4 bolts to chain anchors.

When passing Sun tower there is a roof to the right with bolts on it on both the upper tier and lower tier. Bastard sun is on the upper tier. beyond the down pine as the description says.

Crux is climbing in the shade in February and pulling up the snow covered ledge.

Decent 5.9 for the pit and close to more moderates on Sun Tower. Starts on an easy over hang. Feb 23, 2013
