BETA PHOTO: Men in Black?


A short and unpleasant route with moves that at some points feel like 5.9 and at other points feel like 5.11, but at no point feels fun.

Haul up over a lip to a strange arete/slab climb into a wide crack where you can find anchors...or don't.


To the right of "Dreamland" is a super slabby face. At the right end of the slab, there's a lip and the rock becomes more vertical. This is your bolt line.


Quickdraws. Bolted anchors. This whole route looks like it was redrilled, and something feels wrong with just about every aspect of it.

Some loose rock but was more enjoyable than the description makes it sound.
