Did it without rope drag at all. Back clean 1st and 2nd bolt on P1, use shoulder length on 3rd and 4th. Skip the anchor and back clean the 1st bolt on P2 and 5th (one under the roof). Maybe good idea

Comments: There are a couple of bee nests at the base of Sunshine face. I have been attacked twice this year. Watch out.

Comments: A very good route. I thought there is a distinctive crux in the extension. Can be TRed with an 80-m rope with some stretch.

Comments: Did Figures and Solid Gold today. I felt both pitches of Solid Gold were harder or as hard as the first pitch of Figures (all on lead).

After climbing this route we walked down the backside and climbed up on a sport route on SW face of N. Astrodome, then rappelled from the top. It was a fun little trip. A single 80m rope was just enough to rap down from N. and S. Astrodomes.
