The first wall you come up to at Rebel Branch Hollow is the Bruise Bros Wall. To get to Sunnyside: About 50 yards up the hill to Rebel Branch locate a trail branching across the valley to the right. Follow this for ~300 ft then it will drop down into the clearing. From here veer left over a log bridge then up a short hill. Next follow the obvious path right along the cliff.

Doesn't actually stay sunny all day. STR, SHAH and DTG get in the sun around 12:30 or so.

Hi Bill, It seems like the MuirValley server is currently down. My guess is that it will not be down for too long. I would suggest registering at and send the username "Weber" a personal message (PM) if is not back up in the next day or two and ask what you should do.

Most routes in the main area stayed dry in a 30 minute down pour.

If you're a solid 10/11 climber and you're in the area, avoid the crowds at Bruisebrothers and climb here instead. No crowds and better quality climbs.

anybody want to add Jacob's Ladder, short 5.6 to left of Machete to the guide? I don't know who put it up or FA'd it
MrHyde said on October 31st, 2014
There's a 5.6 or 5.7 route on this wall that is part of a 10b or 10c, although I can't remember the name of it. It was a pretty fun route, and would be worth adding to the Sunnyside list for people who are looking for some easier routes to run.
