Oceanic Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Upper and Lower Dream Canyon Modified from origin...
This is another great wall with some nice climbs nearly right off the water. While there is no ocean here, you can have some nice creek-side beach with pretty granite cobbles.

The route begins with a bang- an obvious side pull sets you up for throw to better holds. From this move, climb into a strenous seam that spits you out onto the slab. Balance and smear your way through the crux and onto to easier climbing....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Anybody know what the two routes left of In Your Dreams are? Leftmost seems hardish 11, next route to right seems like 9+.

I am not sure who bolted these or what they are called. I do agree, the farthest left one is about 5.9. Immediately right of that route is a newer route, I would say is 11a/b. The right one, which I did yesterday for the first time, is very fun. Watch out for a large loose rock right of the second bolt. There is also a significant run out at the top, albeit easy. The left route is a little more lackluster.

How about the right slanting slab pitch two right of Sargasso Sea? Only did the first pitch, and it felt like hard 11 maybe?

I haven't done that one yet, Richard. It looks like a good variation and the logical start to Mud Shark, as it follows the same weakness that forms the crux of that route. Seems like linking it would make for a fun and long traversing pitch.
