Route just to the right of Route#3. A fun wandering route that follows varied natural features. Starts up a right-leaning crack then traverses left across the face to the top. Crux is sidestepping left across a series of xenoliths (pebbles) to get to the left-hand crack.


Route in between route #3 and #4.


Draws. A couple of longer runners will reduce rope drag on the traverse. Chain anchors. Rap, lower or walk off.

Pretty cool... there are 2 old pitons hammered in on this route about 3/4 way up. Jul 3, 2011
Actually the "old" pitons were new pitons - which we have now been replaced with a single bolt in a better position. Apr 8, 2012

we did a super fun variation linking the two crux sections of Xeno Dance and then finished by working right onto the upper section of Proud Mary. makes for a good heady climb. Feb 3, 2017

Placing a quickdraw, as a directional, on the left bolt at the anchor and traversing left to and using the anchor on Route #3 keeps the rope from running into the crack below the "Xeno Dance" anchor. May 12, 2017

Best route at the crag. Hate to be THAT guy, but pebbles in a conglomerate/sandstone do not count as xenoliths. "Xeno" implies that they are foreign to the rock type. An example would be loose cobbles picked up and incorporated into a lava flow. The pebbles in this formation are just larger chunks (clasts) of the same sandy matrix material. But "Clast Dance" or "Pebble Dance" doesn't quite have the same catchy ring to it. Nov 14, 2017

Went back and did this climb again after a few years. Regardless of Ben’s “wandering route” excuse for bolting across my established route, we still regard this as a classic original line. Please disregard the bolts that go straight up from the upper slab - and continue left - if you want to climb the original route. Also, apparently - the crossing route starts on yet another route with another (even more confusing) bolt off to the right of ANOTHER established line to force his line.
Poor style all around. Dec 19, 2018
