Description

Fun route around the corner from Sunshine Daydream. Good holds all the way, with a crux near the top because of a protruding boulder. You can go right or left there; the last bolt is above it.

Location

You can scramble up on either side of the Sun Tower, but the right side seems easier. Either way, hike gingerly to avoid a fall and to minimize erosion. Watch out for big, loose boulders in the draws. The start is to the left of the huge bolted roof, just around the corner from the top half of Sunshine Daydream. Look for a twisted, spindly pine on top; the anchors are just below that.

Protection

four bolts to a fixed anchor
