Dancin' Daze starts up a left-angling corner/crack, 20' left of Peter Eater Pumpkin Eater. Climb the crack (crux?) to a low-angle ramp below the large roof. A big step right (crux?) leads to fun, reasonably-protected face climbing. A shoulder-length runner or two can be used to sling knobs. Rejoin a low-angle crack past the roof to the summit.

Prudent use of shoulder-length slings should keep rope drag to a minimum.


Standard rack.

Great climbing on terrible rock. After the dihedral (which you don't climb up) it's face climbing on hollow, loose flakes. Add in some runout, and you have an interesting route. Might be a classic if the rock was sound... and it wasn't in the Stirrup Tanks.

This climb is divided into two sections that are very different. The lower part is a stellar 5.8 dihedral, easily protected. The face section above the dihedral is committing and most will find downright dangerous, vertical megaflakes and a stark lack of protection. Can bail from top of dihedral by traversing easy slab on left.
