Description

A quality route up the Vanishing Point formation, The Vanishing leads up the spectacular arete that defines the formation. Start at the bottom of the formation (there is a belay anchor), and climb up left for 5 bolts before traversing above the roof to gain the arete. Balancy thin moves lead to a crux at the last bolt before an easy last 10 feet. I'll give it two stars for position and good rock, but it may be a bit overgraded (although consistent with the rest of the Dream Canyon sport climbs).

Protection

12 quickdraws and 2 for the anchor on top

i've been labeled a sandbagger before, and i too find this climb to be solid 11c (for sure if one onsights). Stellar positioning, tricky clips, fun alternative when the upper canyon is crowded. Apr 23, 2002

This route is absolutely worth the effort. IMO better than the star rating suggests. Mar 25, 2018
