Description 

Climbs the face on the left side of the crack with the sumac bush growing out of the top. Fun, varied, steep climbing on edges and pockets. The bolting is little bit "sporty" compared to some of the Echo moderates, but the protection is where you need it. Traverses right under the sumac to finish. Shares the anchor with Morning Glory.


Location 

This route is located just right of Wet Bush and left of the obvious crack.


Protection 

Bolts and fixed anchor.

"Sumac" offers fun and committing moves up the steep wall left of the obvious crack. The route is clean, but each hold should be carefully assessed for dependability.
8 bolts to shared anchor (shuts) with "Morning Glory."

Liking this route more and more as it cleans up. Like Ben said, steep and committing, but not really that difficult. The final bolt directly under the sumac bush is camouflaged and a bit difficult to spot. There's still some loose rock inside the crack to watch out for. The face is pretty clean. Our new favorite warm-up route on the wall.
