Description

Riparian Daydream rises from the edge of the creek to the top of the massive cobblestone formation overlooking the gorge. The first two pitches are sport bolted while the third pitch includes a traditionally protected finger and hand crack.

Rockfall can present a hazard for people below. Make sure the base is clear before attempting the upper pitches.

Pitch One - 60 ft , 5.10-
A crux down low leads to easier but steep and sustained moves up high. Five bolts.

Pitch Two - 95 ft , 5.9+
Climb the blocks and ledges to reach the crux at the small roof and the long, airy slab above. Eight bolts.

Pitch Three - 65 ft , 5.10-
Complete some steep, bolt protected moves to get established in the crack. The crack starts at finger sized and widens to hands. A second, bolt protected roof above the crack leads to the top. Five bolts, single cams #.4-3.

  • Use care when topping out. The rock quality deteriorates just below the top.
  • A 60m rope or longer is mandatory for the rappels (A 70m is recommended). Make sure to knot your lines, the second pitch rappel will put you very near the ends if using a 60m.

Location

The first pitch begins in the main cobblestone area, between Cruiser and Aha!/Silent Mind.

Protection

  • 8 quickdraws
  • Single rack of cams #.4-3
