Start below the black streak on the right side of the wall.

Climb up onto the ramp and continue directly up to the shallow green groove.

Continue directly up the groove with fine engaging moves to reach easier climbing up to the large ledge.

Belay is located back and to the climbers left.


Right side of the wall


5 bolts, double ring anchors

really fun route, actually think it's as good as anything else on this cliff (including little gem). i would not call this 5.9, the crux move on the '5.6' next door felt harder than anything on sunshine surprise.
