Description 

The Stems and Seeds area includes many of the Sunshine Wall's more popular (and more awesome) routes like Stems and Seeds (11c), Air Guitar (10b), and George and Martha (10a). As it is part of the Sunshine Wall, it usually tends to be sunny, although it can get windy.


Getting There 

Traverse about 150 feet further left past the Twin Cracks area to reach the right end of the Stems and Seeds Area.
