Description

Steep, thin start leads to a fun mantle onto a big ledge. The lower portion feels a bit like Shadow. This makes a nice connecting route to the summit after climbing Garden Party, Dark Side or any of the P-Wall routes. Can easily be set up as a top rope if you don't want to lead it.

I would call this a "soft 5.9". The only 5.9 move is in the first 10' off the ground. The rest is 5.8 or easier. This would be a good climb for a 5.8 leader wanting to break into 5.9.

After climbing in the shadows of the far right side of P-Wall, a transition to Sunnyside provides a nice sunny route with great views.

The poison oak at the base is not as bad as rumored.

Location

Wander from the top of P-Wall westerly to the base of Sunnyside & look up. You should be looking at a clean, steep wall with the summit blocks directly above you. If you're looking at a big, dirty crack you're too far to the right.

Protection

Mix of draws and a bit of gear to protect the mantle move. Runout but easy at the top.
