Seams Like A Dream: sustained, varied, a little technical, and in character with Between the Sheets. Its really a continuation of the beautiful first pitch of Between the Sheets, with an additional crux that is a bit more difficult.
Although this route was first realized as a nice alternative to the second pitch of Between the Sheets, and as a continuation of the seam, it was quickly recognized as a means of linking the route as a single stellar pitch. Seams Like A Dream was first red-pointed doing just that.
So, this route's description, including the difficulty and quality rating, are based on the single pitch link up.
Start with the route Between the Sheets. Pass up the hanging belay and traverse right to where the seam starts again. Continue with the seam and finish on the slab above; one nice long pitch.
Small cams and wired nuts; two bolts (that were drilled on lead). Sling the top with the rope or 15' cord for Belay.
