Description 

This might be my favorite pitch at Sunset, and I really like Sunset. True arete climbing, heel hooks and technical footwork included, but on gear. Good gear at that. Start in a small left facing corner, traverse a sloping rail to the left and then venture up the thin finger-crack/arete. Something extra special awaits the at the top, a little taste of the FA I would imagine.


Location 

The last route to the left on the RJ Gold/Jefferson Airplane Buttress. Look for the awesome arete/finger crack feature just asking to be climbed on the far edge of the buttress.


Protection 

Bring the small things, nothing that is a surprise from the ground. A new shiny two bolt anchor will finally appear around the 30m mark. Use a 60 or better.
