P1: Find the beautiful hands splitter in between Claret Cup Crack and Betty and Ray's Adventure. Traverse into the splitter from the left using a finger crack (5.9). Once in the splitter enjoy classic 5.8 hands for 30 feet.

You could keep keep going but might want to belay at the big ledge to have your belayer close for the sketchy face section.

P2: Walk left 20+ feet crossing Betty and Ray's... and begin up a steep face in the center. Begin on the left side and trend rightfollowing the natural weakness (5.9 R). There is not a lot of gear (there might be, I wasn't really looking due to my style of ascent). Bring small stoppers! Belay once the angle eases and you find a good stance/ledge.

P3: Keep trending left to the top (5.6). I found that generally the steeper the rock the better quality. Depending where you belay this may be a short pitch.

This is a killer line, easily the best one up the Sun Tower so far.
