Description 

This problem is very aesthetic, and doesn't get 3 stars only due to its sharp crimps in the mid section of the line... A very cool problem non-the-less. This line sat undone for far too long...

"Ghost Dance" is on the left of the two boulders that make up Rock House. On the left boulder, Ghost Dance is located on the front face as you approach Rock House from the parking lot. If you can find the start to "Indian Outlaw", look to the right about 5ft and locate the lowest set of good holds from which you can sit start from.

The line climbs up and left, sweeping across the corner, and trending left more to top-out near "Indian Outlaw" on the left side of the boulder.

Sit start on low good edges and climb into big but not-so-good jug hands. Trend left into thin gastons which lead into very "aggressive" crimps. Use good technique and don't throw yourself at the crimps and they aren't so bad (I learned the hard way...). From crimps, gain a few excellent "thank god" rails, and then negotiate to the top out somewhere near "Indian Outlaw".
