Description

This route is left-center of the Sunshine Wall, right about where the approach trail hits.

Find a line of bolts to the left of the crack system in the center of the slab. There is one route just to the left (Road to Nowhere) that has a couple of bolts visible from the ground, but this is the leftmost route where the entire line of bolts can be seen.

P1: Climb up nicely featured slab to a belay about 90' up on a small ledge. (5.8)

P2: Continue up. A small bulge about 1/2 way up is the crux (5.9). The rest of the lead is easier. 11 bolts, 100'.

Rap the route - a 60m will just suffice.

If you use some long runners, this makes an outstanding 200' pitch. Oct 12, 2012
