Okay, it may be a bit controversial to enter these routes, but the rock is on NP land, and they've been described in various guidebooks.

This is a modest route on an moderately obscure rock. It follows the blunt, south ridge for a few hundred feet. Not a destination climb, but if you are there....

Find the approximate nadir of the rock. This does require some scrambling.

P1. Ascend a nice, low-angled crack with some brief stemming. There is a chockstone on the right at the crux. 170'. 5.7.

P2. The crux of this pitch seems to be right off the belay, 7+, little pro. Then dance up a fun face section, perhaps PG-13. Save a #3 & #3.5 Camalot for the belay. 200'. 5.7+.

P3. Drop down into a slot/chimney, move over to the slab and cruise up easier terrain to a 2 bolt anchor. 110'. 5.5.

You can rap off the anchor to the west into a slot and down. You may be able to continue another pitch to the top of the Sunshine Daydream anchor and rap.


This starts at the lowest point of the south edge of the rock.


A lighter rack up to #3.5 Camalot. 200' rope helps.
