Sunflower, 5.9

7th Pitch- 165’- 5.9/ This is the only required gear station on Sunflower (2008). Clip 5 bolts as you ascend 5.9 typical slabbish whitish face. Stay right of the bolts to find the moves. Straight over the bolts would put you on 5.11+ slab. Eventually you hit another varnished crack and the going gets easier as you start placing gear again. As the crack deepens and gets larger, you will find a comfortable scoop/pod in which to set up a gear belay right below the corner above.
