Rising Sun

5.8+, Trad, TR, 70 ft (21 m),  Avg: 3 from 4 votes
FA: Nichols & Bob Clark June 1980
Connecticut > Central Valley > Bradley Mountain > 2 Sunrise Rock

Description

The chimney that narrows to a jamcrack is the route Mourning Cloak (5.4).

Rising Sun starts about 4-5 ft left of the chimney and climbs the face to the overhang and the top.

Nichols gave it a 5.9- in the Blue book but my notes indicate I thought it 5.8, so I compromised and put in 5.8+.
