Edge of a Dream starts on the right side of the Amphitheater. Begin on any of the horizontal crack systems on the right hand wall. Work out toward the arete and pull around the corner. As you pull around the corner take a moment and soak in the view. Follow the crack to the anchor.


Trad. Two bolt belay w/ rap rings at the top

This climb is a cheap thrill, get on it. I'd call the move around the arete harder than 5.6. You have to trust some thin feet for a move or two but you step around to easy terrain again and you have great gear. So enjoy the view and the exposure. Jan 6, 2009

A short High Country version of High E. Best to start just left of the arete and go straight up. Jun 28, 2010
