The approach begins at the far left side of the Sunshine Face. Downclimb down and right (class 4) to the ledge with a 2-bolt anchor which is the top of Gates of Delirium's first pitch. From here, continue to the right across the ledge, past the start of The Drainpipe, to where the ledge peters out, then hand traverse on a flake for about 40 feet to the right (exposed 5.3) to a 2-bolt belay.

Climb straight up past 4 bolts (5.11- past the second and third bolts) to the bolted anchor of The Drainpipe.

To descend, make 2 short (less than 80 feet) rappels or one long (35 meter) rappel to the ground.


This pitch starts from the ledge about 60 feet above the start of Ishi and about 40 feet right of the start of The Drainpipe.


4 bolts. Bolted anchors.
