This route starts from the right side of No Go Ledge. The crux is right off the ledge and is pretty well protected with a bolt. Quality face climbing above leads to a second bolt and either cut right to join Hesitation proper or continue up the unprotected face to join Hesitation up higher. Be aware that the most recent guidebook shows four bolts on the topo, but in reality, only the two bottom bolts exist.


Climb Buttress Chimney, First Pitch, or one of several hard faces to access No Go Ledge.


2 bolts, small selection of gear for higher when you join Hesitation.

Most of the routes on the sunshine face are very good and should be rated good to classic. All the line are fairly steep and are on great rock, some of the best at suicide. HAVE FUN!!!

As the route description states, there are only two bolts on the pitch.
