Sunlight Buttress, IV, 5.11

3rd Pitch- 200’- 5.11/ This is the second most difficult pitch of the route. Getting up the blank thin corner takes a bit of finesse until you can reach some positive edges up and right. Peanuts and/or slider nuts would be good micro gear. The hard moves start fairly immediate off the belay with one bolt in between. Getting your left toes out over the arête of the corner as soon as you can gives you extra leverage to reach the positive edges up and right. The pitch stays fairly sustained in the 5.10 range after the short corner. This pitch is long and cannot be combined.
