Comments: FWIW...

"Scattered afternoon thunderstorms" in the Sierra almost always means "Don't even think about doing an alpine route"

Comments: Does this really warrant a new route in the database? It's 2 pitches of climbing...The rest is the same as the regular SE Face.

Maybe this is the alpine equivalent to a "sit start."

Comments: Due to the 20' runout off the deck on suspect rock, an initial crack that is hollow and exfoliating, a very short crux, one of the worst bolts and hangers I've seen on the mountain, and huge, loose blocks at the top of the climb...I'd give this route a half a star after leading it. It's probably more enjoyable as a toprope, unless you're into those kinds of things.

Also, a #3 Camalot protects the crux. I'm not sure why you'd want a #4.

Comments: Have you climbed the route? The crack trends left for the entire climb. Follow the crack...pretty simple.

Comments: Camping at Minaret Lake is WAY better than camping at Cecile. If you do camp here (which I HIGHLY recommend), the South Notch descent is a great option.

Comments: What a lame photo. Worthless helmet, sandals, and 10' of tail dragging along for no apparent reason.

Comments: I found a couple of #3 Camalots adequate for the last half of the climb. A #5 is unnecessary. Short but sustained (oxymoron?) fist jamming exercise.

Comments: This photo is even better when rotated 180 degrees. Still feels steep, but isn't as disorienting as it appears here.

Comments: Heart of the Sun is located on the left side of the Great Wall of China, just to the right of Child of Light (which starts on top of a prominent boulder). The route follows positive holds on a pumpy, vertical face. To locate the route, look for a sort of "cave" with a round orb in it about 40 feet off the deck. Heart of the sun climbs just to the right of this.

Heart of the Sun (5.9), Great Wall of China, Owens River Gorge. A climber can also be seen on the route immediately to the left (Child of Light, 5.9).

Comments: As a liebacking exercise, this may be 5.8+. However, there's no reason this climb needs to be any harder than 5.7. With good crack technique (i.e. jamming both hands, keeping both feet in the crack, right hip against the wall), you'll find perfect hand jams, with only a short section of thin hands / liebacking in the final 4 feet of the climb.

No matter how you do it, it's a fun climb, and definitely one of the best in the CRG.
