Description

This is far and away the best line at Sundown. Unfortunately, I was not able to send. In fact, I'm not sure this line has ever been sent. The landing isn't ideal, its pretty tall, and not exactly clean at the top. A physical and mental test-piece for sure.

There's the potential for about 3 lines on this face. One that goes up the right arete, one that goes up the left, and one that goes from right to left.

Location

Walk about half a mile. This boulder is on the left. You can't miss it.

Protection

Many pads

The face is called "Queen Line". Climbed by Henry Fitts. Graded V7. May 4, 2013
The face was climbed by Dave Jacobson in 1988, he had a name for it but I can't remember what it was. The route started on the left and moved into the thin crack to finish. This was before pads, and I think he might have actually led it using a single tcu placement. May 4, 2013
called it "short circuit" I believe ajax greene gave me a belay on this the day after we camped out to get Dead tickets. Needless to say I was alittle hung-over. 1 tcu placement, crux is very similar to the crux of "Yellow Matter Custard" wich I was working on at the time. May 24, 2013

Cool. Gave you credit, Bob. It would be great to have any other problems you remember entered. I hope to get over there to explore around more this year. May 3, 2016
