face and thin cracks lead up and left to top of triangular face. Crux just below top.


This route starts on the Right and at the 4th bolt it crosses "Solar Wind" and continues left and goes to the top where it shares top anchors with "Solar Wind"

This climb and Solar Winds share a bolt half way up. But do they cross each other?

To me, it is more consistent/sustained to combine the right start with the left finish for Sun Burn. And conversly, climb the left start with right finish for Solar Winds.

Climbed here yesterday for the first time. I like the routes. 99% sure this was the route, based on the web page description. Whats up with the funky anchors up top? Look like homemade hangers with tow chain hooks. Anybody know how old those are? I followed suite of some previous cautious person and threw webbing around the triangular horn at the top to rap down on.

Interesting, so, this is the right start, and left option, little more direct finish after the routes cross?

I made changes to the topo which is in the Photo's section on the Emeralds main page which will provide better information on "Solar Wind" and "Sun Burn"
