Description

This is the most obvious finish to any route that reaches "Sundeck Ledge". The ledge can be reached by the "Standard Route" to keep the grade at 5.8, but the recommended approach would have to be "Satisfaction Guaranteed", directly beneath the dihedral--which would certainly be a 3 star combination in my opinion

From the bolt anchor just below Sundeck Ledge, this pitch is a full ropelength and might present rope drag issues. From Sundeck Ledge, climb up to a chockstone, mantle over onto a ledge, and continue up the very large and steep left facing corner (double cracks), with fantastic stemming and jamming and plenty of rests. The pitch ends at a coldshut rappel anchor from which two double rope raps will take you to an easy downclimb, or one can scamble to the summit and walk off to the east.

For the most part, the description of this route is great. However, the last sentence may be missing a word, because it requires two double rope rappels to reach the ground/an easy scramble. From the base of the Sundeck Ledge, there are eye bolts for the top of Sunday Serenade/Satisfaction Guaranteed. You will see them unless you climb up and over from the Standard Route. Nov 9, 2015

I really loved this pitch. It seems like it has every type of climbing. Hands, fingers, fists, face, OW, chimney, plus some good exposure. If you're at the Sundeck already keep going, you'll love it. Oct 4, 2009

Fantastic route - one of the best pitches that I've climbed. Charles' comments are right on. Once you climb over the chockstone, you're committed to the route. I thought that the crux was located about 20 or 30 feet above the start of the crack. We also used double ropes, which significantly reduced the rope drag. If using a single rope, bring lots of slings. Great pro, great rock, and great climbing. Jun 18, 2005
