Hop on this route too soon after warming-up and you too will feel like you're on a vision quest. This route begins steep with a highly sequential set of difficult and unrelenting moves over edges, side pulls, slopers, and poor feet. Choose the wrong path and suffer a sense of abandonment and solitude.
Start steep off the ground and power through a trio of tough, steepening bulges, passing four bolts. Move right-up-left-up and over some very difficult and pumpy terrain (this will also earn you 30 free guys on Contra). Surpass this journey and graduate to an easier, more directed path. Surviving this stunt allows passage over a quick and easy scramble to gain the ridge. The trek home begins here as you climb the sharp arete passing positive and sometimes awkward holds to the anchor. Conquer this achievement and feel entitled to advance to tougher, more mature routes at the wall.
While Vision Quest won't win any awards for being ultra-classic, it is still a worthwhile undertaking. An early crux is nice and allows a enjoyable finish.
