Description

A fun intro to multi-pitch. This climb follows a line of cleaner rock between moss streaks on the high left side of the Sunshine ridge formation. The bolts are well spaced on this one though a few gear options to 2" are possible.

Pitch 1 starts on a clean bulge 30' downhill from the start of a poplar thicket. Climb spaced bolts through fun moves to a section of easy scrambling. A short final bulge gaurds the an hoe. The anchor is slightly left in a tundra covered alcove. This pitch is 110 feet, knot your ends if you rap with a 60!

Pitch 2 climbs the bulge directly off the anchor before trending slightly right. More 5.6ish fun on good rock.

Location

250' above the parking for Sunshine Ridge. The best approach is a scramble up Thrombosis gully to the tundra, continuing up and left to the nice tundra knoll with a large half dead spruce tree. Walk off as for Sunshine Ridge or rap the route. 2 60's will get you down in one rap.

Protection

Pitch 1: 6 bolts, rap anchor
Pitch 2: 4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

You obviously have no clue what you are doin if you ran out of beer and weed, junior. Jul 2, 2015

Um... Why would you care? Maybe we forgot the rope but not the beer and bolts, maybe we were just "kooky," or maybe I just like to say things to piss off people who call themselves "The Shocker". Hell, maybe our plan was to sink 420 bolts into sunshine ridge before retro bolting every route established by Andy Hoyt but we ran out of beer and weed first. Jul 1, 2015
Umm..... Why would you be soloing with a drill and a partner? That seems either kooky, or a bit of an exaggeration... Jun 30, 2015

It's not easy to get a route, even a 5.6, perfect when you are soloing and drilling. I was bored and thought it might be fun for OTHER climbers if there were a few bolts. At least I brushed off a few holds and cleaned the real loose rock... Jun 30, 2015

Andy, I'm stoked you enjoyed this one dude! May 28, 2015
Climbed this by accident. Totally contrived POS 3rd class climbing. I can't believe someone took the time to bolt this. Not recommended. May 25, 2015

Took my girlfriend out on this route for her first multipitch. Fun route. Easy 5.6, maybe a move of 5.7. Rapped off with a 60m, end were about 3 inches off the ground on the second rap. Apr 30, 2015

Fun little climb. I would say most of the climb is 5.5 scramble with a couple of 5.6 moves. Still a bit of lichen on the route, especially on the lower sections. I would avoid the climb if a little damp or wet. Apr 24, 2015
