Description Suggest change

Banana Peels is loaded with wet, loose, and licheny 5.8 chimneys! Maybe it is not the best route on Sundance.

The 1st pitch really isn't that bad but the 2nd pitch... has anyone done this?? We climbed straight up the nasty, left-facing o.w., chimney above. I'd be tempted to rate it 5.9 R/X and I didn't even finish the pitch. So, if for some reason you want to climb the 1st pitch of Banana Peels, I'd strongly advise the 90 foot rap to the ground or maybe finish on Kor's Flake.

Protection Suggest change

Bring a standard rack up to a #4 Camalot.
