Sundog, 5.10a

5th Pitch- 190’- 5.7/ Locate a relatively new bolt (2007) at the base of this pitch just to the left of an obvious crack which is just to the left of the large gully separating the large walls above. Where Horndogger was all trad, including the stations, Sundog will offer bolts on its run out sections along with fixed stations which also serve as your double rope rappel stations. This lower bolt is really not needed except to help the belayer maintain his/her footing in case of a leader fall. Follow the easy 5.6 varnish up the run out face to the left of the crack past a bolt and onto a small ledge at the base of another crack. Climb the 5.7 face varnish, protecting into the crack with various cams until you reach a small ledge above with a fixed station.
