Very hard thin climbing at the last bolt with runout climbing preceeding it on the arete.

Start just right of Sundance on a flake. Pass a bolt (11a), then move up and right to obtain the arete that forms the right hand edge of the Sundance lieback corner. Climb past two bolts, moving right then up (12b) at the last bolt.


Alternate first pitch to Sundance.


Bolts, gear to .75"

A potential 11a direct start to Sundance, but beware - it's harder than it looks from the ground and there's not a great stance to clip the first bolt from.
