Description

A great, somewhat burly, two-pitch line. Once you find the start of Hotline and the aid start of Fatal Mistake (fairly easy), scramble up and right around the right side of the Worst Error Pinnacle. This requires some fourth class scrambling up ledges and loose stuff. There is a large chimney between the main wall and the Pinnacle; Pink Dream starts just left of this and is somewhat hidden from view.

P1: Climb a long right facing corner system to a huge ledge. 5.9+, 150'.

P2: Climb the beautiful splitter crack to a burly corner. Belay at three old bolts. 5.10a, 120'.

Descending is somewhat difficult and required us traversing around a ledge into the corner, while on rappel, to a rappel station on a tree.

Protection

Single set from 0.3 Camalot to 0.75 Camalot. Doubles in #1-#3.5 (#4 C4 OK) Camalots. Extra #3 for the timid. Wires. Two ropes for rapping.
