The crux is moving off the bottom block into the crack. Right now there are no chains, but these will be added. Exit right and use the chains to the right.


This is the squeeze chimney on the left flank of the Sunburst wall as you look at it from below.


Small and medium cams, with a #5 Camalot for the top, if you want it.

Just left of Crack of Dawn which is the 10+ trad route with two finishes.

This has some interesting moves, and some slightly tricky gear. I hauled up a bunch of big stuff but didn't use any of it, mostly small to medium Aliens. Some small to medium tricams might be the useful for the bottom section.

LOVE the name, perfect name for a new climb at the Sun Spots.

I was up there yesterday and had to do this route just because of the name! The route is still fairly grungy and a little loose, I managed to break a small hold off at the bottom so be careful.

We placed a couple stoppers (#7ish BD), a yellow alien, 0.3-0.75 camalots and a #2 at the top (behind a questionable block). Protection might be a bit tricky for a new trad leader.

Did this the other day and was still crumbling a lot of stuff under my feet. It's worth noting as I ended up with a fairly run out section past the half way point, where the threat of weak holds made for some excitement. Brought some big stuff but not much point.
