Description

Sundaze is found right of RP 4 Me and left of Zephyr and goes up the smoother looking face up top. Easier climbing turns to much more difficult face climbing at third bolt and continues all the way to the top.

Protection

6 bolts to 2 bolt anchors.

Paul's commentary is right on. You definitely notice the + part of the 5.9 rating, especially at the top. In fact, my friend and I weenied out and led Zephyr 5.10c/d (great climb!) instead because its clips look easier. Toproped Sundaze one more time before going and discovered that keeping the bolts to your right on the ascent would make this a more manageable lead. Next time... Sep 13, 2005

This route gets steep towards the top and the bolt clips were very difficult for me. The bolts are a bit apart and I probably mistakenly tried to reach from below on thin, awkward stances instead of making one more move up. The moves aren't as hard as Zephyr but the clips certainly were much harder! Aug 1, 2005
