Description

As you come into The Vault, there will be a short uphill stretch of trail with a dead tree lying across the path. The big, dark dihedral above the tree contains a neat line that may never see the sun, and this is Illusions. Good moves on excellent stone make Illusions a kick and a good warm up for the harder climbs found in The Vault. Illusions is a tad past vertical so it tends to be a bit pumpy, but never harder than moderate 5.11.

Protection

Half a dozen draws and a rope.

Great arete climbing. Takes some thinking to figure out the best way of climbing several of the sections. May 30, 2012

I'm a big fan of arêtes, and this one was full value arête climbing. I loved this route. And it's shady all day. Adding to the overall satisfaction, the bolt spacing is a bit airy by today's standards but very safe. Sep 19, 2011
