Shine On (You Crazy Friends). Up and left from where the trail hits the cliff, this is the Second-to-left-most route. Up easy ground, then move left through a bulge, up a slab, then over another bulge at an under cling pocket. Sustained, with three cruxes of similar difficulty. "The best sport 5.4 in the park."

First done at the end of Jason's trip, just before he flew back to Alaska, it was lead in a steady rain.


7 bolts to LO.

love the name!! \m/ Oct 18, 2014
Lord Peterson is glad that most can climb "Shine On" without dangers of tree falls as that is quite a distraction during climbing....however, the crazy friends are definitely required !! :-) Apr 30, 2015

Your subjects are arguing about 5.4 or 5.5, without a tree falling on you. Apr 30, 2015
I don't think it is the left most route anymore. There is another one to the left of it that goes at around 5.6 w/crux on the 2nd bolt. It's a bulge that is best done with a high left foot mantle. May 19, 2015

I thought the route to the left was 5.7, but yes there is a new route just put up last week. I forgot the name but will find out and post it. May 19, 2015

I climbed this route and the one to the left. Of the two, this one is definitely more enjoyable. Aug 17, 2015

Man what a great moderate climb. I gave it full credit... I just thought it climbed so nice and on great rock in a great spot... excellent! Oct 13, 2015

All bolts are well placed for easy clips. Fun climb.

Its about as technically difficult as Mowgli, so 5.2?

As of July 4th 2017 the lower offs are worn about halfway thru. Jul 4, 2017

The hardware at the top is still quite worn through - might be a good idea to replace soon, and until then be prepared to rappel if you don't wanna trust lowering over the grooved biners. May 14, 2018
