This listing is to help fill out routes on a minor subproject to help those who are looking for clearer descriptions of routes in Boulder Canyon & Dream Canyon. So, this route ascends a right-facing dihedral of the left side of the Icon. I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Maybe a bomb rating is being too harsh, but there are rounding errors. 0.47 stars.


This is on the left side of the Icon.


A standard rack with some wide gear.

Definitely two bombs for this one.

A solid bomb and with pendulum potential at the top if you traverse the ledge right towards the bolted anchor.
