The Sunglasses Route
Grade 2.25
This nine pitch route starts on the extreme right hand end of a large and obvious bench accessed from basin above the waterfalls at the head of the Anti-Crow River. It then follows through a short steep section then follows slabs angling left until on the main arĂȘte. The rock is excellent; compact greywacke, great friction, but sparse protection available. From the top of the arĂȘte the route follows an easy but broken ridge over a short step to main summit.
