Big ledges lead to more big ledges.


Far left in the Oragne Sunshine area.


You can probably fit just about any size gear at any point on the climb. Great for beginner leads.

Climbed this route last fall and again this spring. Did anyone else notice that a chunk of rock left of the crack, lower down, where the crack is huge and flairing and difficult to protect, came off the wall that had two nice hand slots in it? Just makes that section a little awkward. But hey, still a 5.4, 5.5 so no biggy. Just wondering if anyone else noticed that.
