Description

Welcome to Sundial, probably the least visited area in the Shuteye Ridge area due to the difficulties getting there.

It rewards you with climbing in a wilderness environment, several 3-4 star multi-pitch climbs and really fun knobby rock.

For the best information look in the Yellow Section in the Shuteye Ridge Guide book from Wolverine:

Getting There

First go up the road to Shuteye Peak to the lookout. Then take a 'trail' downward, staying on the ridgeline to the saddle between the big stone spine on the left and a rock feature that will come up on your right. From here descend into the gulley whatever way you can to the base of Sundial. It can be better to stick to rock since the brush is thick, but they can be VERY slick when wet. This trek down to Sundial to the saddle doesn't really have any clear trail so its more like bushwhacking.

NOTE: The 4wd road from Queens Throne Area (i.e. 2wd Camp) up the Shuteye Peak is VERY technical. Even with a 4wd you need some nerves and high clearance to get over blocks that can be 1.5 ft tall. When I went up here I drove half the way until things got too rad and then I hiked the rest of the way to the lookout.

It is 2.5 miles and 1200ft elevation gain to the lookout from 2wd camp. Then another 1.5 miles and 800 ft elevation loss to the base of Sundial.
