Sundance Peak, East Face. In late July Anne Ketchin and I climbed an interesting new route on the east face of Sundance Peak. Following a book crack that starts slightly left of center on the face we climbed five pitches to the top of the south ridge. The third lead, a down-sloping, moss-filled dihedral which required two copper head nuts for protection was particularly challenging. NCCS II, F9.
