Sunshine* 6a
[Sunshine on Sunshine! Wonderful day out, bar a 30ft whipper! , 3 kb]60m, 2 pitches. ***PLEASE TAKE CARE WITH LOOSE ROCK - anything dislodged from here tends to funnel toward the lower path to Ferocity wall***
Pitch 1 (5) climbs the slab to the left of St Gregory. A pleasant beginners climb in its own right.
Pitch 2 (6a) Has plenty of bolts but is rather more exciting prospect with a bit of a trad feel and some loose rock. Cross the collapsing debris behind the belay and climb up onto the arete. At its top traverse left with crux moves after the bolt which has a rope extension. Finally exit at a white wall and belay on the fence behind.

Practiced the route first on alternative leads and seconded the second pitch, proceeded to simul climb it making it very very bold on the first route and especially scary (and bold) on the second pitch, partner hit the crux on first pitch just before i topped out so became especially, if practiced and well bellow your grade (think mid 7's) this makes a good first simul climb, that being said i was shitting my self on the crux of the last pitch.

Marktrin - 2nd - 15/May/15 with Phil

Took a big fall after a hold snapped whilst clipping bolt during crux, claiming the onsight as it was flowing very nicely up until that point! 10 cm from decking!

Did pitch one on Chris's draws. For some reason pulled on the draw after the ohang. Took ages to committ to the the upper slab. First lead of the year. Did not do pitch two.
monkeytennis - Lead dnf - 05/Apr/15 with Chris Tebbit

We took the direct finish by mistake and turned it into a monstrous sport trad hybrid. Don't make the same mistake.

Chawn p1. Led p2. Nicely exposed and not too as loose as expected - I only broke off one foot hold!
francois - AltLd O/S - 06/Jul/13 with Chawn

Made a navigational faux pas and traversed right at the top, ended up running it out on a mixture of grass and loose rock and had to have a rope lobbed down to finish. Esoteric fun at least!

Found it difficult to get up the arete until I found a nice undercut. The traverse was difficult, but did it clean
skeight88 - 2nd - 13/May/12 with Richard

Rope extender VERY frayed (I'll try to replace on next visit). My 1st sports route! really enjoyed it. Had 1 rest on bolt.

Took the Wrong Route (Didn't do traverse) - with serious runout over dirt on second pitch, need to come back and do it properly (might not be so scary if I take the bolted route!)

I only did the first pitch up the slab, which is a 5 or 4+. Was a fun climb, strange thing to be bolted compared to the rest of the crag!
