This often overlooked route features some hard boulder problems and an interesting challenge alongside the other incredible climbs on the Vestibule. Begin with the same heinous start as you would for 'Grand Ol Opry', but continue trending right up a crack system. The middle section of this climb is the easiest climbing on the entire wall, but the end packs a punch- and a sporting runout.
At any other crag, this awesome route would be covered with chalk, but neighboring such stellar routes has unfortunately left this pitch very infrequently done. It's well worth it!
Begin exactly as you would for 'Grand Ol Opry', but trend right immediately after the burly start moves. It is on the far right side of the wall.
6 bolts to a 2 BA.

It's come to my attention that someone has stolen draws off of Dreamcatcher and the anchors from Grand Ol Opry. Stealing draws ranks among kicking puppies on the ultimate list of duche-baggery. I donated these draws in the hopes that it would increase traffic on this otherwise over-looked gem of a pitch.
Keep your eyes out for any sketchy looking individuals (aside from myself) using team only METOLIUS LOGO DRAWS.

Hmm... I'd have to say that the Quickening gets the honors for the easiest climbing on the wall.
