Description:

...Then what is it? Short, fairly steep face on the backside of the Sun Tower proper (the formation that Pleasant Dreams is on), accessible by the gulley scramble. Somebody take a whisk broom to all that rodent poop on the small ledge by the 2nd bolt! Oy!

2 out of 5 stars worth doing it once

I would agree, 10a is a little steep, I would call it a nine

Flash Flash ascent by: andrewG on 2008-08-03 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars fun climb

approach is a little sketchy, but access to anchors is easy from other routes. just rapped down the last time, then rapped again off pleasant dreams to get back to the packs. fun moves with good holds. 10a is a little soft, i'd say 5.9
