Description 

This is a fun route in a nice, exposed location - the right edge of the Sunshine Face. An easy crack pitch leads up to a good belay. The crux pitch follows a knobby face, with the crux face/lieback move right at a bolt. Except for the crux move, the climbing is quite easy.


Protection 

Standard rack.
