Start out on vertical jug climbing. Skip the first bolt which is only meant for cleaning, which you don't need to do since the draws are fixed. The climbing gets progressively steeper to a tricky sequence around the 4th or 5th bolt. Deal with some slopers and get the jug. Most people skip the dogging bolt through this section. From here the Diggler and La Confienza branch out to the right. Head straight up through the crimpy crux and head to the anchors. The final moves, although easier still feel hard as your quite pumped at this point.


On the left side of the Pipe Dream, look for the fixed draws, and possibly a line. Shares start with the Diggler and La Confianza, Wake and Bake is to the left.


Fixed draws and anchors.

The finish isn't too bad once you figure out the correct beta...but with the wrong beta this thing can feel super hard.
