Description

Start by scrambling up a 4th class slab and stick clip the first bolt. From here, easy dihedral climbing leads to a large ledge where you can rest. Swing over left and attack the roof, exiting on the right side of it. Get ready for the business--A long pull off of a very slopey rail leads to a variety of slopey sidepulls that take a lot of body tension to hold on to. It felt like climbing an overhanging refrigerator. Make the last clip and get ready for the redpoint crux: pulling the lip on more slopey sidepulls. A long last draw is useful to reduce rope drag during the final mantle.

If it's sunny, it gets sun most of the day, hence the name... A great winter climb for sure!

Turn around and gaze at the Adirondack beauty; it's amazing up there!

Location

This route is on the Corkscrew Buttress, at the far left end of Lost Hunters, recognized by its steepness relative to the rest of the cliff. This is approximately 300' left of the Terapia arete.
