Description 

Experienced leaders have gotten a rude awakening on Sunset Sonata, which gets an old-school 5.8 rating in the DCA. Sparse footholds for stemming make the dihedral a real workout.

Start in a blocky, overhung corner. Move up to a ledge then right to a right-facing dihedral with a handcrack. Climb the dihedral to the top.


Location 

Starts on a ledge above the main trail, just left of the Windwalker/Liberty Bell area.


Protection 

Small-to-medium cams; anchor status unknown.
