Description

Hike west along the base of Sundance, past the huge roof band of Turnkorner to a large, fairly obtuse, but distinct enough right facing dihedral.

P1-head up the dihedral, sometimes using the cracks and flakes to the left, and belay after 100 ft (5.8).

P2-more of the same out on the left, to a passable ledge.

P3-Head up into two shallow, opposing corners. Stem them (5.9), continue past a ledge and over a 5.9 bulge to another ledge below a large, right-facing corner.

P4-climb the corner at 5.8 and belay on a low angled area or continue up P6 to the top.

P5-climb a flared 5.6 chimney/ crack to the top.

Head east to the descent gully.

Protection

Standard rack.
