Description:

Start just right of Sunny Day and climb up to a large block. Climb around the block, left or right, and through more blocks up to some horizontal cracks at the base of a steep headwall. Follow the cracks back left towards the shared rings with Sunny Day. This was originally a trad route but is currently top-rope only. It is also possible to start and end this route several different ways. Multiple, large flakes were removed from this route during the cleaning process.

Descent Options:

Lower, walk off, rappel.
