Sunshine Daydream

The climb starts right of Pleasant Dreams on bulbous bouldery corner start (crux) then cruzer. Good stance for clipping bolts, follow 8 bolts to top, easiest climb on the Tower. Great first lead, warm up, or night climb.


Son Tower "The Pit"


3/8 bolts, rap anchor= chains

Recommend not to TR even if through your own draws. Lots of rope drag on all the different variations of rock bulges and crevices. Go top rope a 9-10 that is vert to slight overhang. Great view. Rap down. Sep 16, 2015
Fun easy route. The rope can get stuck when pulling it and rap can be tricky when throwing end of rope down. Oct 4, 2015
Greg. Thank you for the comment. I’d like to know more details about the accident. If you know the person involve perhaps forwarding my email. I’d be interested to hear how the accident happened. It would save me from speculating or assuming. Apr 16, 2018
