Climb the first 2 pitches of Sun & Steel or Where Vultures Dare, from the anchor head straight up passing 4 bolts and onto a ledge with a 2 bolt anchor.

From the anchor two options exist.

1) Easier. Traverse directly left 8' into a short fingercrack and then up clipping two more bolts on your way to a blocky ledge and 2 bolt anchor.

2) Harder. Climb directly above the anchor into a short handcrack. When the crack ends make a leftward traverse to a bolt and up to the anchor.


This is a fun and well protected variation to the 3rd pitch of either Sun & Steel or Where Vultures Dare.


6 bolts and few small, medium cams. All bolts added after 1st ascent by FA.

Definitely recommend the link up Where Vultures Steel Beer. Vultures Pitch 1 -> Sun and Steel Pitch 2 -> Beer Run -> Vultures last pitch. The difficulty never goes above 10a, and stays on great rock until the last pitch of Vultures. But if you're psyched just do the last bolted pitch of Sun and Steel as the alternate finish.
