The bottom protects well, so the first hard moves are just plain fun.

Whats the sun like at this route/wall?
caribe said on November 30th, 2011
TE and SL and some of the left portion of the wall get morning sun. As the sun progresses to the west Oberon (which faces east) lights up more.

Oberon faces West.

careful! Small footchips and other holds on the face may break! Also, bring a brush for the upper section to brush off lichen
