Sundagger Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Sundagger wall. Climber on Look No Hands (5.8).
This is the wall directly opposite Patina Wall. While Sundagger is less obviously featured than Patina, it is nonetheless home to several quality sport routes, as well as some mixed crack climbing. The left side features a couple long slab climbs while the right side is divided by a horizontal seam that creates a belay ledge between upper and lower climbs. These upper routes (5.8 to .11d) can also be accessed by hiking further up the gully and walking the ledge back to the start of the climbs. The quality of rock on Sundagger is quite good and adds considerably to the VotM experience as Patina Wall is the most popular destination and other crags in the area tend to be limited in routes or of poor quality rock.
Same as for Patina Wall. Follow the main road south from the camping area, up to the open plateau. Continue on the trail to the southeast, toward Gravity Wall. At the far left (east) end of Gravity Wall the trail turns to the south. Continue around to the right to find the gully that leads up between Patina Wall on the right and Sundagger on the left. Allow 20 to 30 minutes of easy hiking.

This is the leftmost bolt line on Sundagger Wall. Start at the right side of the moss and follow the slab to a right-slanting crack. Climb up and left over the crack and continue up the slab. High on the route there is a vertical crack on the right. Either use the crack or stay to the left. The crack offers opportunity for protection above the last bolt but the climbing is low angle and very easy at this point. The anchor is just above a horizontal where the face steepens, to the left of t...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
