2 out of 5 stars Sunlight Buttress

Sunlight, not Sunshine...come on guys, at least get the name of the route right. With Zach. His idea, not mine! Kicked my butt. First two pitches damn cold, did not come into sun until 10:AM, then was all fine temps wise. 3rd pitch is or two hard moves at the grade to reach positive edges up and right...sixth pitch and really the whole route from the 3rd pitch on worked me over quite hard. Super day with great partner though. Tons of ice in the the canyon. One or two curtains might even be climbable Jan, 2011.
