Description Suggest change

Pitch 1: Sunburst Arete starts up a wide crack to the top of a pedestal on the left of the arete itself. Once there continue up on the left of the arete from good rest ledge to good rest ledge. At about 2/3 height move out right around the arete for a few moves before swinging back left across the arete again. Now finish straight up to a spacious belay ledge. (100')

Pitch 2: Above the ledge you run into a 4 inch crack, that tapers into a hand crack. At the top of this move left under a roof. Pass above the roof on the left side to a grassy ledge and slung block rap anchors to the right. (80')

From here, a two rope rappel will bring you back to the ground, or you can continue above meeting up with the last two pitches of paralysis.

Location Suggest change

Continue along approach trail past Gamesmanship, and past Fastest Gun for approximately 10 minutes. Once you reach the amphitheater, with Cirrhosis and Paralysis you can see the Arete to the far right side of the cliff.
