Anyone been up there recently? How does the walk-off look for sundance? I climbed up there early season last year and with the snow the descent was super sketchy. Guessing it's similar now? NickinCO Mardi

I was at the book yesterday and I didn't see snow anywhere really, including sundance. Though I didn't really scope the walk off up close. Jeff McLeod

It looks like the temp trends have turned the corner. However, when I climbed at Lumpy recently when the forecast was 50s and low winds, the wind was blasting driving the wind chill into wintry conditions higher on the formations. It was still a great day but I was glad I had layers and a soft shell jacket and pants.

Check Google Earth...it looks like there is a washout starting high on the left side of Sundance from the flood. I can't tell if it is in into the descent.
