Sundance is the impressive waterfall line that forms on the right (north) side of the road. It is easy to see when driving/skiing down FR 585. Typically, it is done in one long pitch. This thing gets a good amount of sun. To descend, walk off to the right.


Take FR 585 for about 3 miles. Sundance should be obvious up on the right (north) side of the road.


A selection of screws.

This is the best pitch in the canyon if you find it fully formed. Best led in one long 60m pitch to top. Be ready for fresh ice on this one in mid winter-not chopped out. Aug 21, 2012
