Description:

Start to the left of Second Sun and face climb up to a flaring crack (sweet!). Climb this to a ledge and move right to where you are standing under another flaring crack in a small roof. Pull the roof and then climb a nice vertical face with a crack part of the way to the top.

5 out of 5 stars Fun Cruxes

Thought the crux moves were more fun than Blonde Ambition, but not as sustained. Great route.

4 out of 5 stars Easy 5.7

We didn't have a guidebook, and we got on this thinking it was Second Sun because it looked harder than the line to the right (Second Sun). Boy were we surprised! This has got to be the easiest 5.7 at Sunset. Still a great climb though. Even has a little roof on it. Wasn't too sure about protection down low, but it turned out there was plenty to be had.

3 out of 5 stars Hard to say

Can't really comment on how this route was because I think I climbed it as a combination of Second Sun and Jugular Vein. The routes on this wall seem kind of non-descript...
