Description

From the base, boulder up a short section with optional protection that leads up and over easy 5th class to a sloping ledge at the base of a corner. An initial layback move gains the corner, which requires creative stemming and layback climbing, to a good rest just under a roof/visor. Boulder out under the roof, traversing through a series of technical moves, using pockets, and a horizontal crack/seam to a mantle at the end.

Location

Follow the PSOM trail to just about the toe of the PSOM buttress. A faint "cut off" trail makes a sharp left. Go up a short ways over easy talus and connect with a trail that leads to the base of the Gold Wall. Head up another 20 yards or so to the base of Sun Kissed. The climb is just left of Red to Riches and the prolific Austin Loves Dragons.

Protection

Pro: 8 bolts and gear from purple metolius equivalant, to .75 Camelot and optional stoppers. Lower off with 70 m rope. NOTE: Super tradsters, in order to protect vital holds(for me at least), please refrain from putting in gear and bypassing the bolts in last 3rd of traverse as this was attempted on the FA resulting in a couple of broken edges along the horizontal crack/seam. Thanks.
