Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!

Description 

A handful of quality bolted routes line the right end of this crag. As the name implies, this crag gets lots of sun making it a fine stop for early or late season bolt clippin.

Getting There 

From where the approach trail meets the cliff, go right to the bolted face or left to several wandering trad slabs.

Staring up at all the underclings

Diamonds Aren't Forever 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  NY : Adirondacks : ... : Sunshine City
Strenuous, undercling, slab climbing. This is a unique route that looks easier than it is. Start on good holds next to a dead tree. Pull over the starting bulge and scramble up low angle slab to the first bolt. Follow the maze of downward facing holds up the slightly off-vertical slab.Well bolted and good fun although it looks like a hold or two has broken off and a few more could be poised to pop. Belayer be warned. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
