Description

Sweet Sunday Serenade is a Unaweep classic. It consists of three good pitches on excellent rock. The climbing is not very difficult but highly enjoyable. The climb is located on the right hand side of Sunday Wall and starts in a left-facing dihedral with a right-leaning hand crack. Just to the climber's right of the route is Catch a Wave, a bolted 5.11 face climb that shares the same anchor as the first pitch on S.S.S.

Pitch 1: follow the crack up and right with a 5.8 move just off the ground, 135 feet to a bolted rappel anchor.

Pitch 2: climb obvious corner up and left from the anchor with fingers and face moves 5.9 for 75 feet to a good ledge with bolted rappel anchor.

Pitch 3: there are several options. The original line leaves from the West end of the large ledge above the belay and climbs a right-angling crack for 25 feet to a ledge below a large flake. Pass the flake, and climb a nice finger crack 5.9-. Near the top, traverse slightly right, and look for another bolted rappel anchor, 155 feet.

Descent: rappel with two ropes to the ground.

Protection

Standard rack to a #3 Camalot and two ropes.
