Short bolted climb with crux exit moves. Good warm-up.


Rightmost climb on the Lower Sunset Wall. Shares anchor with the climb Crystal Whipped. Situated to the left of the 4th class scramble to the Middle Sunset ledge.


3 bolts to fixed anchor.

An uninspiring line that doesn't need to be repeated. Second and third bolts are definitely for those taller than 6'.

For me the crux was getting to the first bolt. Stick clip is highly recommended.
