DescriptionA proud line to the summit of Sundance Pinnacle. The crux splitter finger crack on the NE face/arete is visible as you begin the climb to north lake.
The base of the route is accessed by 400ft of 4th and easy 5th class scrambling to a right facing 5.8 corner below the giant right corner offwidth. Ascend this corner trending right to a large ledge, 5.8 140ft.
Climb a discontinouse crack system trending right to a nice right facing corner. Fire to the end of the crack and bust the Manley mantle. Clip the old button head bolt (yikes!) and traverse right (crux) to the splitter tips crack. Git your slab game face on and bring the rp's/offsets. Belay at the small ledge, 5.10b/c 180ft.
More tips to a hand traverse right and airy climbing to the summit (f&**ing rad), 5.10- 150ft.
