Description 

The Sunporch offers a handful of routes on an undulating wall. The routes here are short, but the main attraction here is the ample afternoon sun.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, head down the main approach trail in a NNW-erly direction. After 5 minutes, the Violence Wall approach spur splits off to the right. Continue another few minutes, and another spur trail branches off to the left (west). Follow this spur towards the Sunporch. Near the canyon bottom, several short, easy downclimbs are required. Do not descend all the way to the canyon bottom. Just before the end, traverse the ledge system South to the broad shelf of the Sunporch.

First crux is just off the deck. Above waits a slopey rail and a beautiful gaston, with what many call the best jug in the world. Then up to the finishing crux of Tantalizing. Look for the big jug between the chains at the finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
