Comments: Recently climbed here for the first time and in comparison to yosemite, J-tree, Tahquitz and Suicide climbing definite sandbagging going on. Probably about a grade higher than stated. Great climbing however with solid granite. Will visit many times to come...

Comments: Most of the routes on the sunshine face are very good and should be rated good to classic. All the line are fairly steep and are on great rock, some of the best at suicide. HAVE FUN!!!

Comments: You won't hit the ledge till you pull rope to clip the second bolt on the second pitch. Dicey stance and long fall to clip. Crux is first few moves right off the first bolt. Classic steep suicide face route. One of the best.

Comments: Difficulty right next to bolts gets easier as you move up. Totally classic for the whole climb.

Comments: The climb is probably 5.8 if you want to stay out at the lip, gets harder as you go in to protect yourself.

Comments: Darrell and I had it worked out so the belayer could take a quick run down the hill if you took a fall trying for the third bolt. Scary up on second but felt relieved not to have gound fall looming...

Comments: First post describes the route pretty good; strange moves to get started with the mantle above to finish off the classic. The style totally signifies the trad mantra, bolts only where you need them. If you can climb 5.10 should there be bolts on 5.7?

Comments: VERY CLASSIC ROUTE. One of the best at Suicide. Can't believe the rating of 2 stars. It has one of the best finishes at the rock.

Comments: This used to be rated 5.6 till the block fell out in the 80's. Still think it should be 5.7. Fun route to run up..
