This route wanders up to the wide ledge at the base of the Enclosure
sector, visiting a couple of other picnic-ready ledges along the way.
Useful mainly to access other climbs, especially the Manticore Upper Arete
and the Enclosure
area -- or to have a more private sunny picnic.
This route does not go up to the top of the cliff.
Route: Start walking left gently uphill on the grass/dirt ledge (the Picnic Ledge). Next head above the ledge by scrambling up some rocks to the second picnic ledge. Then left a bit (but not all the way to the Manticore arete at the east edeg of upper Tower Wall), and scramble up some more. Finish with a move right up onto the wide rock below Enclosure wall (the high picnic ledge).
Variation: Start with the challenge of the Sunny Shortcut
overhang to get up the onto the Picnic Ledge.
Optional to bring a separate picnic snack for each ledge.
Descent: Down-climb the route.
About 65 feet right (East) from the Picnics Dihedral (which is the junction of the wider South-facing wall of the Sunny Picnics area with East-facing wall which forms the Right end of the Tower Wall). About 30 feet past the perched Mushroom block. As of 2015 need to cross a large fallen tree and walk another 15 feet east, until the rock face is low enough so can easily scramble around up its right end.
