Hard move off the deck to make the first clip, and another hard sequence to make the second clip. Very sequential and height dependent move to make the third clip. Sustained through the next two clips, and easier terrain to the anchor. The anchor on this route is a indoor gym type clip anchor designed for TR. Full sustained value at the grade!


Sunnyside crags just left of Dr Know. Start in the overhanging cave type area.


5 bolts and clip type anchor

Good route. Clipping the 2nd bolt is HARD, don't blow it. Feels like it's missing a hold or two around bolts 2 and 3.

Second that. If you blow it while pulling rope on the 2nd bolt, the ground is pretty hard. Very cool first moves.

Didn't like this route. I was fine through the first two clips. I was too short (5'7") to hit the large hold at the 3rd bolt without basically dynoing. The side pull holds, IMO, would prove harder than 12a to make the sequence work. I called in the longer arms of my friend to finish this one. Booooooo

Powerful and awkward movements off the deck. A left hand crimp by the second bolt broke in my hand while foot chips crumbled away when attempting to clip the third bolt. Didn't finish due to safety concerns
