Daybreak

5.8, Trad, TR, 70 ft (21 m),  Avg: 2.8 from 4 votes
FA: Nichols, solo May 1994
Connecticut > Central Valley > Bradley Mountain > 2 Sunrise Rock

Description

Start about 5-7 ft right of Thin Man and climb over the OH on it's right end (crux, tricky sequence) then up the face passing the block on the right.

Nichols gave this a 5.8+ in the Green book, then changed it to 5.7 in the Blue Book; my notes indicated I felt it " 5.8 to 5.8+".

The climb between Thin Man and Daybreak is called "Solar Wind", 5.8R and climbs the OH at the corner.
