DescriptionThe climb starts same as Dream of Poudre and follows the first 3 bolts. To start the route properly, scramble up and make the big move from the glued on side pull to the small positive crimp. After clipping the 3rd bolt, make the next big move, switch hands, and start the heinous traverse to the right. At this point, you meet up with the Dark Horse project. Make a few more difficult moves, with a nice dead point, to gain the horizontal ledge and rest. From here, make a couple more big moves to gain another rest. Milk this as much as you can before making a series of easier moves to set up for the crux dyno throw. After the throw, turn onto the slab and finish on Dream of Poudre/Pinkle Bear.
Have an attentive belayer at the dyno, missing the jug on lead will send you reeling back into the ledge lower down. If you like big bouldery moves, this route should not be missed. It combines the best moves of Dream of Poudre with so much more.
