Do the first two pitches of Sweet Sunday until you hit Sundeck ledge. From there you go up to the next ledge via the crack with the chock stone at the top. Once on top of the ledge traverse right and up 10 feet. Gain a ledge and then do the corner to the roof. Crux is the transition between under the roof and the hand jam at the roof's lip. Can be done as one long pitch past the roof to a belay from the Sundeck ledge.


3rd pitch variation to Sweet Sunday Serenade.


Slings. 2 hand pieces, (2) .75, green, yellow, red Alien.

Nice finish for SSS and worth doing. Will clean up with some more traffic. The guide suggests belaying on a ledge below the crux corner. Rock quality is poor here and requires bigger gear (#3-4). You could belay one ledge lower at the base of the 5.8 OW. We easily climbed to this point combined with the second pitch of SSS.
