The route. October 2013.


Enjoyable face climbing/finger crack start leads to an easy ramp following a finger crack. Hands to wide hands climbing leads to an overhanging, offset #4 camalot crux crack. The offset nature of the crack means one doesn't have to conjure up serious OW climbing.

Cop a rest above the overhanging crux before finishing up via an offset wide crack/chimney to a ledge and the anchor.


Adiós Alemanes starts six feet left of Sundog in the dark flared crack with nice finger crack in back. The route is new in October 2013 and not listed on Josh's excellent Upper Wall mini guide.


Two each .5, .75, #4 camalots. One each #1, #2, #3, #5 camalots. Optional blue big bro or #6 for finish. Two bolt anchor at top.

A #6 camalot is recommended. You'd have to run it out to the anchor, like 15' or something, without that (or a big bro).

The #6 doesn't give you much, I placed it about a foot above the #5 and then had to climb past it anyhow.
