Description 

A fun dihedral crack route! (...and, a rare Meadow River moderate.)

Stem, jam, layback, occasional holds.


Location 

Obvious dihedral mid-left on Sunkist Wall.


Protection 

Standard rack, mostly hand size cams.

No Anchors - (The trees and bushes atop the route are NOT reliable/convenient rappel anchors.)

Easiest, is to traverse left to bolted anchors of the adjacent sport route (The Hand Out) and rap from there (photos below).

Rap slings on trees at the top. Please inspect all webbing and cord before trusting it though, rats have been suspected of chewing some webbing in the area.

Although short, this route is SUPERB! Be sure not to miss it if you are in the area.
