3 *** Seamstress

The first climb on the Sunnyside and one of the best. Popular with lots of bolts. Starts up the obvious right leaning, shallow corner.

22 Sport 22m, 10 Unlink route
4 ** Seamstress Direct

Boulder up the steep seam on gastons and very poor feet. Direct start to the 22 Seamstress. Has been upgraded to 27 on 8a.nu, you be the judge..

26 Sport 20m Unlink route
5 * An Angel Walks By

Up the short crack, then pumpy slopers to a couple of moves over the roof. Longer than you might think - be sure to take enough draws.

23 Sport 23m, 13 Unlink route
7 ** Searching for the Light

This line provides a popular jug haul through scoops to a new higher anchor 3 bolts above the halfway ledge.

23 Sport 15m, 9 Unlink route
8 * Searching for the Light Extension

The second half is also very worthwhile, with an intriguing crimpy sequence requiring good footwork,followed by a small rooflet

26 Sport 30m, 14 Unlink route
9 ** Troc de l’Ile

Climbs to the half-way ledge via some huge pockets and a couple of not so huge crimps. Can be used as an alternative start to Searching for the Light Extension

24 Sport 15m, 7 Unlink route
10 When the Spirits are Calling

Much more difficult than it looks, with unexpected and unusual moves. The rock is a bit crunchy.

21 Sport 15m, 8 Unlink route
11 ** The Dreaming Void

Great 24 to ledge, then the L-facing little corner above, all the way to the highest roof. Pumpy as!

25 Sport 29m, 12 Unlink route
12 ** Parallax Error

Stick clip first and perhaps the second bolt as well, A couple tricky clips. Boulder out the hard start then a couple of big moves lead you up to the crux through bulge and up onto the face to join onto The Dreaming Void. Long and fun.

27 Sport 30m, 12 Unlink route
13 A Rover in Time

Trends L, with a few bits of blocky boomy rock but apparently it's all solid ... now.

24 Sport 15m, 10 Unlink route
14 ** A Rover in Time Extension

A satisfying line that goes all the way to the top of the cliff. Desperate 27 if you’re short, but more like 25 if you’re tall, so we’ve given it 26 as an average.

26 Sport 30m, 16 Unlink route
15 *** House of Suns

An easy start provides access to the magnificent second half. Move slightly left at the last bolt before finishing directly up to the anchors. The upper half looks amazing.

30 Sport 25m, 11 Unlink route
16 *** The Reality Dysfunction

Ultra classic. Mostly superb jugs to a rest just before the redpoint crux right at the end. Take a ticket!

25 Sport 20m, 12 Unlink route
17 *** Realized Ultimate Reality Linkup

This great linkup provides an easier approach to the high inviting corner/arete of La Realite N’Existe Pas. Pumpy for the grade.

26 Sport 20m, 11 Unlink route
18 *** La Realite N’Existe Pas

The first route to be bolted on this section of wall. Heads left after the 4th bolt and then up to a bouldery crux on the lip of the roof to gain the high corner/arete.

28 Sport 22m, 10 Unlink route
19 *** Event Horizon

Another ultra classic. Steep pumper with many quality boulder problems split by good rest jugs. A very unique crux. Start up the first 4 bolts of LRNP and keep on heading up.

27 Sport 22m, 10 Unlink route
20 Quel Bordel

Interesting steep climbing with a bit of crap rock at the bottom. Shares the same first two bolts with YOTSB.

24 Sport 20m, 11 Unlink route
21 Year of the Sun Bear

Awkward corner to ledge. Watch for ledgefalls for the first few bolts off the ledge.

25 Sport 20m, 10 Unlink route
22 ** Accretion

The blunt arete at the far R of Sunnyside Main Wall. Amazingly overhanging and exposed, but consisting of easy, well protected climbing. A grotty start up 5 fixed rungs guards this gem. Easily up rungs (clip a draw to the rungs if concerned), then up past 2 bolts to original belay ledge (optional belay stance here). Continue up and left on obvious jugs past 4 bolts to below roof. Up and vaguely right following line of least resistance past 3 more bolts, then back left onto good orange rock and up to anchor below massive roof. A 60m rope MIGHT just reach on stretch (tie a knot in the end), or if not, lower to belay ledge and re-thread from there. It is possible to continue up past the roof to anchors at the clifftop via 3 more bolts (making a giant 45m pitch). The last 10m or so is average climbing but in a great position. To escape, you need to re-thread on lower-off back under the roof, or climb on 2 ropes and rap.

Start up Searching For The Light for the first 4/5 bolts then go direct for a couple of moves before cross back left over SFTL and finishing high up on the wall
