Shine On (You Crazy Friends). Up and left from where the trail hits the cliff, this is the Second-to-left-most route. Up easy ground, then move left through a bulge, up a slab, then over another bulge at an under cling pocket. Sustained, with three cruxes of similar difficulty. "The best sport 5.4 in the park."

First done at the end of Jason's trip, just before he flew back to Alaska, it was lead in a steady rain.


7 bolts to LO.

Lord Peterson is glad that most can climb "Shine On" without dangers of tree falls as that is quite a distraction during climbing....however, the crazy friends are definitely required !! :-)

Your subjects are arguing about 5.4 or 5.5, without a tree falling on you.

I don't think it is the left most route anymore. There is another one to the left of it that goes at around 5.6 w/crux on the 2nd bolt. It's a bulge that is best done with a high left foot mantle.

I thought the route to the left was 5.7, but yes there is a new route just put up last week. I forgot the name but will find out and post it.

Nice route, far from being trivial. I enjoyed this one.

I climbed this route and the one to the left. Of the two, this one is definitely more enjoyable.

All bolts are well placed for easy clips. Fun climb.

Its about as technically difficult as Mowgli, so 5.2?

As of July 4th 2017 the lower offs are worn about halfway thru.
