Sunspot ascends the crack on the right side of the...

Description 

A fun, challenging and technical slab route! Place a couple of cams near the start, continue up a thin face with reachy moves to a bulge.

Surmounting the bulge is the crux. Once you know the trick, you'll love this route!

Location 

Just past the little bridge, on the same face (and using the same anchors) as Solar Flair. The right bolt line.

Protection 

Quickdraws and midsized cams. Bolted anchor.

Super fun route. Don't fall off in surprise when an alien pops out at you during the crux...!
