This short dihedral climb thins out pretty quick. Those who are taller will have an advantage reaching the high right crimps (about three depending on finger size). Make sure you have some good rubber for the necessary stems.


Upon arrival of Sunbeam Buttress, you will see a set of sport routes (Sunbeam, Moonshine, and Out of the Dark). You should also see a fixed rope left of these routes that leads up to a ledge. I would recommend heading down the short trail on the left to check out climb and location of the anchors then head up the fixed rope to the ledge. The anchors will be located about 4 ft high at the end of the ledge.
