At the left end of the cliff is a fat, right-facing flake. This is the first pitch of Elusive Dream. This is the only free pitch on this route, and to my knowledge, no one has freed the upper two pitches of aid looming above.

Climb the fun layback/jamming flake to the crux exit moves. Once above the crux, a thoughtful "stand-up" move is encountered...don't pull on the rivets! Choose a nest of tat to clip in to. (Note: There are two anchors at the top, but the one on the right seems to be the more sound of the two.)


300 feet to the left of Chronic Fixation atop a large cave-like feature.


#1-#3 Camalot and a blue, green, yellow, and red Alien will suffice, plus about 4 QDs.
