This route starts just to the right of the 5.10 which is to the right of May Day. The rock quality at the bottom of the route is awful and as of 5/21/14 is missing a nut, the hanger is still there perched on a ledge. The bottom boulder problem could merit a bomb rating and the bolt and the holds around it are HIGHLY suspect.

Climb the steep loose boulder problem, and follow route direct up the slab on better rock following the bolt line and end at the anchor on the left. It is possible to continue this into Sunshine Ridge.

It might be possible to skip the nasty boulder problem and traverse into the climb from the climb to the left, bring runners.


second climb to the right of Mayday. Follow a path up an under the overhang to the first bolt.
