R.E.M. use the bolted face avoid stemming


A great route at the grade, at least for the Pit. Climb the vertical face on the left side of the tower with increasingly difficult moves to a crux near the finish; stemming to the left wall reduces the difficulty of the route. R.E.M. is a fine moderate lead that also stays mostly in the shade when the other walls are sweltering in the sun.


On the left side of the Sun Tower, climbing just to the right of a chossy corner.


5 bolts to bolted anchor.
