Description

One of the only slab routes on the north wall, Sundance also has a direct .11a start that begins with an overhung section and a good mantle.

It is the second route from the right on the North Wall, and after a moderate start you find yourself on a ledge and join the direct start. Then you climb past 7 (?) bolts on slabby terrain that is surprisingly challenging. There are three bulges that make for ~10a moves and each is punctuated by an easier section.

It looked like a joke from the ground, but I was surprised by how much fun I had on the slab.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor w/ chains.A runner would be advisable for the first two bolts.

The direct route might be considered 'serious' as a fall finishing the mantle will probably put you back on the deck.
