An obvious line that has somehow escaped documentation despite being commonly climbed. I am adding this to the database for informative purposes. After an early trad ascent in 1991, Casey Rhodes and I referred to this as "Sunburn" (a variation of Sundance).
Climb into the OW and continue to the top, placing large cams. At the top of the crack continue directly up to the shared anchors of Sundance and JuJu. I believe the difficulty to be ~ 5.9-.
Sunburn is an assumed name for a trad ascent of the OW crack left of Sundance and right of the arete on the left hand side of the "Trash Compactor." I led this early in 2001, but I believe it was led prior to that time.
Some wide cams and if desired, a bolt at the top before the anchors as for sundance.
