DescriptionYes, it is very short. This is Not the reason to come to Dream Canyon; however, it is a nice line, it has easy pro, and it's a terrific pitch to do at the start or end of your day. It's ideal for beginning leaders, and I would certainly do it again.
Scramble past trees and deadfall to the base of Thunder Point. Go up the right side to a big tree below a huge right-facing corner.
You can anchor the belay at this tree, 20 feet before the crack, then climb up the rock/bush section to the start. Once you gain the block, climb up the huge corner. You have two cracks for pro and some neat stemming.
You can also TR Sunset Arete (11d), but I found that the anchor placement meant the rope was sawing over the arete, which was disconcerting.
