DescriptionGood mixed climbing. A very thin face crux combined with a unique feature on the second pitch, as well as a pitch of superb liebacking.
Pitch 1: Do the first pitch of the Iron Cross (11a).
Pitch 2: Clip the first bolt of the Iron Cross and then move left to follow the razor thin flake up and left. This flake is wild, a small rock dropped behind it will come out at the bottom of it, down by Red Rain. Although easy, the super thin nature of the flake makes it quite exciting. At the end of the flake climb past two bolts (11d) to the belay ledge.
Pitch 3: Follow the right facing flake to the top (10b). This is yet another of the truely classic pitches on the Sunshine Face.
ProtectionBolts, thin to 2".
P1= (2) .5 Camalot, #3-6 stopper, #3 Steelnut, #2 Alien...bolted Belay.
P2= 50 foot runout up wild, razor flake ("No Pro Show") Stand (careful now) one bolt, 4 bolts
The crux here felt really hard for 15 ft., more like .12 something...Just sayin'
and I'd make sure I was really calm before standing to clip that lone bolt at the top
of that razor flake...and unless someone added a bolt low here, the belay bolts on the
top of P1 are all you can clip before heading up that wild flake.
P3= Double set TCU #1-3 (3/8" to 1" pro) up a sweeeeet .10a Lb flake...Belay=loop tree
