Comments: Extremely well protected - even for a sport route. But good sequential moves towards the top which are more technical than the routes on Hoogie - actually had to stop and think.

Comments: Opening moves are the crux, once that first bolt is clipped the rest is cruise.

Comments: More character than the better protected routes to the left due to its longer run-outs,and IMHO better because of it. Just lead it or leave it alone.

Comments: I have a young friend (a good guy) who has done a lot of sport climbing; he said he'd feel really good if he could lead comfortably at 5.12. I told him that a better ambition would be to lead every route on the Sunshine Face up to 5.11+. It's not about the grade, it's about the rock and the lines we draw upon it.

" -- move left around a corner (passing a bolt) to a left-slanting crack leading to the top -- "

Comments: One can also see the second pitch of White Slab, which climbs up mainly the edge of the big triangular slab above and just left of the leader.

There's also a climber on the left on Longland's Climb.

Comments: On the north side of the boulder directly opposite the Mommys Boys Face. Start on the left, close to the ground for most of the traverse until forced to move up and onto a high ledge towards the right. There's also a variation that continues low at a much hight rating.

Comments: Paul thanks for the GIS map - Thunderbird Wall is mis-located; it should be opposite Claim Jumper Wall. Either that or rename it as Skyy Slab.
