This recent addition to Sunshine Buttress is a new-school, slightly scary headpoint of sustained, delicate face climbing. Start on fairly easy terrain, moving out a slightly chossy roof to get established on the face left of Mother's Milk. Reach faaaaaaaar right to get some good gear in a horizontal before making a series of tenuous moves that embody classic New River Gorge power face climbing– big moves, small holds, delicate and high feet. The crux involves a small, right leaning crescent feature, with a thank-god bolt just over a small roof.


Starts just right of the Whores in Church prow.


Bring all the small stuff, plus one bolt to bolted anchors. Though not R-rated, this climb has well-spaced gear with the possibility of big falls.
