The west face of the tower hosts a crimpy little affair. Tough moves right off the ground give way to easier terrain up high.


West face (faces the main cliffline) of Sun Drop II Tower. Lead or solo Burnt-Out Candle around the corner to set up a TR.


Toprope setup with nuts and hexes.

Credit for the name goes to Ben Ingman who climbed it a few years after me thinking he might have had the FA. His choice "The Tryout" is way more clever than what I came up with. Ben thought it hard .11, I thought it was 10+/11-. Tried it again last year and have to agree with him, stout moves to get it going. Sep 10, 2009

Another fun and super sequential route that would be an area classic at twice the height. Oct 26, 2010
