Description 

Good mixed climbing. A very thin face crux combined with a unique feature on the second pitch, as well as a pitch of superb liebacking.

Pitch 1: Do the first pitch of the Iron Cross (11a).

Pitch 2: Clip the first bolt of the Iron Cross and then move left to follow the razor thin flake up and left. This flake is wild, a small rock dropped behind it will come out at the bottom of it, down by Red Rain. Although easy, the super thin nature of the flake makes it quite exciting. At the end of the flake climb past two bolts (11d) to the belay ledge.

Pitch 3: Follow the right facing flake to the top (10b). This is yet another of the truely classic pitches on the Sunshine Face.


Location 

Starts at the same place as the Iron Cross.


Protection 

Bolts, thin to 2"
