Find the left most line of bolts on the main wall at El Polvorin. The start is tricky; I found that climbing left and traversing right into the climb was the most logical. From there, follow bolts to a ledge with a rappel station. A leftward bolt line splits off (Alerta roja, 6b+); Sueño takes the line straight up, then trends left on pockets, tufa, and cracks (bolt line stays left of the small cave below the corner of Pilier Dorada). This is a long and sustained pitch, and feels slightly more challenging than other climbs of the grade in El Chorro.
