Description

Climbs the face on the left side of the crack with the sumac bush growing out of the top. Fun, varied, steep climbing on edges and pockets. The bolting is little bit "sporty" compared to some of the Echo moderates, but the protection is where you need it. Traverses right under the sumac to finish. Shares the anchor with Morning Glory.

Location

This route is located just right of Wet Bush and left of the obvious crack.

Protection

9 bolts and 2 ring fixed anchor.

"Sumac" has much suspect rock on the face and in the crack. We watched a guy pull off a large block while on TR about 1/3 of the way up the route. Fortunately, the block missed his belayer. Jan 2, 2015

Liking this route more and more as it cleans up. Like Ben said, steep and committing, but not really that difficult. The final bolt directly under the sumac bush is camouflaged and a bit difficult to spot. There's still some loose rock inside the crack to watch out for. The face is pretty clean. Our new favorite warm-up route on the wall. Nov 19, 2013

"Sumac" climbs up the steep wall left of the obvious crack. The opening moves ascend suspect rock and holds should be carefully assessed for dependability. The route is steep and committing, but eases up above the 4th bolt.
8 bolts to an anchor (shuts) with a stray shut situated above the anchor shared with "Morning Glory. Sep 9, 2012
