Okay, Hear me out and just tell me politely if this is silly. But the other day I was about to climb Sun Bowl and I noticed another way to use those bolts without climbing pretty much ANY of Sun Bowl. Sun Bowl stays well right of the bolts for the entire climb except for the very top. I climbed to the left of the bolts but they were well placed for this climb as well. It is absolutely an independent line which only shares the very last two holds.

Start up the short arete and up some crimps to a stance. Work through an interesting mantle move, clip the final bolt and move left past crimps aiming for the right facing triangle hold. A big move on thin feet gets you to the cutaway jug at the top of Sun Bowl. Finish on good holds to the anchor.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if other folks have already done it this way but then again who knows. The reason I noticed it was that I was thinking if I had discovered this cliff how would I have developed it and this line would have been my first choice.


Between Murk Trench and Sun Bowl using the Sun Bowl bolts.


3 bolts to anchors.
