Description

The obvious crack / ramp in the broken area of the 1st buttress between the big roof and Tony's Tango.

It is a good beginner's outing. The bolts at the top allow a wide variety of toprope adventures.

Protection

Standard rack.

Great climb for beginners, it can also be extended to the top by climbing 2 more ~5.5 pitches and a nice corner (5.6?) topout. Aug 30, 2011

Excellent climb for brand new climbers and getting people into crack climbing. First climb I ever did, and first free solo that I've done as well setting up a toprope on. Feb 23, 2011
Yeah MossMan it necks down near the top. Both Kindergarten and SD are great climbs to put a budding young rock rat on.
It's funny that this is called "Sunshine Dihedral" as it is almost always dark and more of a flared chimney than a corner. Oct 7, 2008
Dang! Sorry about that. You're quite right! I'll fix. Oct 6, 2008
