Pitch 1 (5.5): start between "Rights of Passage" and "Sunday Morning Coming Down". Scramble up to a wide, shallow chimney containing a face. After exiting the chimney, belay on ledge.

Pitch 2 (5.6): slightly to the right, continue up a hand crack until you reach another large ledge below the headwall. Go 30 feet left to the chain anchors, and finish on your choice of bolted routes.


Start just east of trail switchback on right side of South Face.


Standard rack.

Super cool Catie-Cat! Thanks for submitting this.
We called the 2nd pitch of this route "Sunset" in the LSP Guide,

Names are arbitrary, but I thought I would connect the dots back to the guidebook for people that have it. Jan 28, 2014

Best (?) easy trad (no bolts) route on the south face.
Start right above the trail switchback/corner. . . (alt. P1: scramble up to and climb through a big, flared chimney, and finish in the middle on solid rock - top of left side is rubbly and a bit sketchy).
At the large ledge, go right and you'll see the cracks/flakes that bring you up "Sunset" and to another big ledge with a boulder. . . we belay here, and then traverse west to the anchors below the headwall pitch of Right of Passage (which is a good, stout 5.9 finish, giving you 3 pitches).

This route is called Sunset. Nov 16, 2016
