This is one of two routes (other being Bob Dylan, 5.10-) on the left side of the Twin Cracks section of the Sunshine Wall. Crack goes from hands size down ("wavy" rock, easy climbing) to tips at the top (crux). Gear anchor.


Left edge of Twin Cracks section of Sunshine Wall. 25 feet above trail (scramble up to start through some mank). Immediately right of a chossy looking wide crack.


Standard rack to 2" including a few micro pices for the top.

Geoff, I just copied the ratings from the guidebook. Think 10- is fair for both.

maybe I was having a bad day, but I would say this is not a great warm up route. I did it as my first route out last fall and found it pumpy with sketchy pro. Make sure to find pro as it has a number of insecure moments.
Shared anchor with Bob Dylan I added in 2015.

Fun climbing and now with its own anchors on the pillar face! I find this less sustained as Bob Dylan next door.

Doubles from micro cams to a .75 bd will get you there. Gear is spaced at times but solid.
