Climbs the 65-foot West Face of Mt. Doom up a slab bi-sected at mid-height by a big ledge. Many choices of anchors on top. Popular, but sporty.

3 out of 5 stars Sunny Yawn

Very low angle. Not a 5.7, unless you seek out the hardest line (there are a lot). Maybe 5.6, only in parts. Mostly 5.4 or 5.5. Not easily protectable, you should probably TR--the only way to get to the anchor is to lead the 10a on the adjacent wall (the next to the cave). Awesome view, and very sunny.
