Follow dihedral up bolt line to anchor. Positive holds and nice route for the grade.


Just left of overhanging 12 a on west face. Route starts in bolted dihedral. SCSG 3rd edition route 822


6 bolts to shut anchors

The anchor shuts on this climb are severely worn. The grooves are quite deep. I don't know when I'll be back to NJC, but if someone qualified wants to replace them I would be happy to pay for the hardware. PM me.

Not bad. Would be nicer if it was some other route. Last bolt can be skipped with no ill effects. Top is loose, so watch your bean while blabbing at the base.

Fun in the Sun is an excellent route with great stemming and footwork. No need for power, just good footwork. Definitely, a climb deserving more attention. Clean and well protected.

Kinda cool stemming down low, a low-angled section in the middle to a brief but steep finish make this an ideal warm-up for the wall.
