Around the corner from Hans Solo and the other east facing routes, is the north side of Zippy Rock. Hike around the right side of Zippy Rock and look back east and up high;...you will see a very steep, beautiful highly featured face. This is Wild Dream. Climb up plates until the plates run out, then up past two old bolts to the summit.
N. Face of Zippy Rock.
A good selection of cams and stoppers. Quick Draws, and long reach and balls for the top.

I really enjoyed this lead – the steep climbing on positive plates with protection between the patina felt unusual for joshua tree. And when you think the climbing is over... welcome to the desperate slab top out on 1/4'' bolts. The bolts protect the crux well, but should be replaced.

How do you get off this thing after topping out?
