Description 

This route is on the southeast side of the Beer Block just through the narrow passage between Beer Block and the Big Pine Wall block. But despite the sunny-sounding aspect, it's shaded by the Big Pine Wall block most of the day making it a nice route for those hot days.

Start out on chalked-up but not-so-positive holds to some decent holds for clipping the first few bolts. After the third bolt the climbing becomes steeper and a bit run-out to a difficult clip at the fourth bolt with a fixed chain draw. Chalked up holds around the fourth bolt look appealing but don't offer much for a good clipping stance. Don't you love it when the crux of a route is clipping a bolt six feet above the last bolt?

Location 

This route is on the southeast side of the Beer Block at the top of the narrow passage between Beer Block and the Big Pine Wall block.

Protection 

5 bolts to anchors

Excellent route! There is a chain draw on the 4th bolt that makes "the crux" clip a bit easier.
