Josh, This isn't "Dead don't Dream". Dead Don't Dream is on the formation just right and back of Tall Wall. "Dream On" is way up above at the Diamond Blade Wall. Go past DDD, keep working up till you have to tunnel a bit. Look up and left to the Diamond Blade Wall - you are looking at some of the best rock quality in the Hills. Feb 12, 2013

One of the better short routes at the Bam. A little awkward to start then good hard steep slab. A couple good layback moves to a little stinger at the top. May 4, 2011

I think i climbed this route. It started off on some really dirty creaky flakes. Kinda scary. Top Half was really fun though Mar 13, 2009

I'll be honest: this route felt haaard for 5.10b. Maybe I botched the sequence, I don't know. In any case, I found it quite enjoyable, and the upper crux very engaging. One of the best routes at the Tall Wall. Mar 2, 2009
