Climb a slab for about 15-20 ft to a bolt. Could probably get protection before this if desired. Head past the bolt over a steep bulge for the crux moves. Head up on easier ground, to the final steep moves at the anchors. Protection is good but not everywhere.


See Dream Tower introduction for approach information. Hail Dancer is the far left route, a bolt about 20 feet up marks the start. This route is about 30 yards upstream of The Sponge.


Light rack up to #2 camalot. Could take a #3 camalot for the very top if you think you might want it. Some small cams are nice as well.

Although it looks ok from the ground, when you're face-to-face with it, the lower-off anchor needs some love.
Maybe the next team that cares can bring up some more quicklinks, and/or very short sections of real chain, and some washers (or real hangers), and a wrench, and a Good Samaritan badge, to try to equalize the mank. May 21, 2012
