Description

This is a beautiful, south-facing pillar that is approximatly 60 feet of vertical ice to 40 feet of blob to a large tree for an anchor. It gets lot of sun, so conditions could change rapidy. This climb could easily be WI5 in during its initial forming up stage when weather is very cold and the ice is chandaliered. After a day of warm and sun, the ice is plastic and super fun.

Location

About sixteen miles into Unaweep is the pullout to access Sunday Wall. If you are looking due west towards Sunday Wall, Spooky Tooth can be seen at about 10 o'clock towards the top of the ridge. Even if a trail is found (if there is snow), the hike in is a bushwack, deadfall, boulder, & trailblaze. Well worth the effort if its in.

Protection

22 cm screws and V-threads. 12 inch tree for belay and rappel. 70 meter rope for rap.

One of my favorite groups of the late '60s early '70s. Never had acclaimed success, but they played the sh*t out of them on underground radio.
