On the far right of Oceanic Wall, there are currently 3 routes. Pound Town is the second route left of the corner (where Wrinkles In Time starts) through a sculpted water streak. Climb up ledges on good holds, then move into face climbing with jugs and edges. Execute the crux around the 4th bolt, then continue on stellar rock to the chains. (The first route left of the corner is 5.9- requiring 6 draws plus small to medium-sized gear for the top section.)


This is the second route from the left of the corner. It goes through a sculpted water streak.


7 draws; rings for anchor.

Greg told me there is a rusty old piton up there... just begging to be whipped on.

Just FYI, the name comes from two things.... One being the rusty old piton found at the base in some chossy wet cracks.... The other reason is.... Well, it's Dream Canyon....

Fun climbing, great rock, and well-bolted; overall a pretty good route and nice addition to the area. Too bad about the tasteless route name though (same goes for the route next to it).
