Description

If you come into the Sunset area at the right side of the Sunset Boulder, passing "Sunset Arête", walk down and all the way past the main tall face. Pass Braveheart and the Highlander and continue to the very end of the pall, past the slabby portion. At the rear wall, before the next slabs you will see a vertical (slightly overhung) face with a long diagonal slash/crack that ends at a pointy jug. This crack is the start.

Stand start low on the crack and follow it to the pointy jug. Gain high feet and blast up and right to a small jug. From there, surmount the juggy lip of the boulder and travel up to the slabby, super tall top through solid jugs and pockets. Don’t fall...

The crux is entirely within the first 15 feet. If you're not up for some danger you can do the lower half "gym style" and fall back to your pad from where the big lip jug turns horizontal (downclimbing a bit first helps). The landing is nice and you still get the technical meat of the route. Aug 22, 2017
