BETA PHOTO: Sunny Picnics routes from SE Y - Manticore Face Z ...


True arete moves. If only this were longer - (though several other routes can be Top-Roped from same or nearby top anchor).

Up the obvious arete. Then can join the Picnics Dihedral route (or continue up on Manticore Upper Arete or Manticore Face route).
Above Picnics Dihedral route, could then scramble up to finish on one of the routes of the Enclosure area, such as Sigrun's Choice .

. . (From a trad anchor constructed above this route near top of cliff (near the top of Sigrun's Choice or Manticore Face route), could also Top-Rope routes such as Picnics Dihedral, Sigrun's Choice , Manticore Dihedral, Manticore Face , the Rossinator, or Red Knob Madara variation.)

warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).


On the left (West) side of Sunny Picnics (the East-facing end of Tower Wall). The arete between the Manticore Dihedral and the Picnics Dihedral.

--> See on Routes Photo


Top-Roping: Could construct trad anchor for top-roping near the right (east) end of the the top of the Tower Wall (like near the top of the Manticore Upper Arete route).
