This route has a couple of moves on it that are a lot of fun. Getting the chains can be a bit tricky.


Three bolts with anchors at the top

The route pictured here is Bulginator, 5.6. The guidebook, even the new edition, makes it easy to mistake this route as Sunny Fun because it calls Sunny Fun a TR route with no bolts when in fact there are three bolts.

Sunny Fun is to the right of Bulginator and the big tree by it. Walk a few yards and then you will see the bolts for this line.

I mistook this route myself a few times until today when I got suspicious enough of the book description to go looking, and then I figured it out.

Here is Sunny Fun:

Thanks for the feedback RMS. I made the corrections you recommended. Next time I'm there I'll have to find Sunny Fun.

No problem, David. Sunny Fun is a cool route, and I just added a page for it. If you need a partner next time you're here, let me know.

If you pull onto the big ledge after the first bolt, it probably does feel 5.6, with the anchor clip being the crux, but if you stay more on the face for the first two bolts, I think it is more like 5.7 and maybe even 5.8.

The anchor clip can indeed be tricky until figure out the easiest sequence.
