|This is one of my favorite routes in Dream Canyon. I led this yesterday by starting in the gully at the base of "Wrinkles in Time" going up the gully and then up the bolts to the anchor at the top of the pitch. This make for about a 170' lead. The bolted part of this pitch is very sequential and sustained and has some of the prettiest granite I have ever seen on a beautiful arete. I could not lower off even to the ledge gully on the left with a 60m rope so I belayed my partner up the route and we did one short rappel to anchor at the top of the climb "Stained Glass" and then another to the ground. Also it would be possible to rappel to the ledge system on the left side for an ascent of "Sea of Dreams" et al. I always bring a yellow alien and place it at the top of the upper crux (after the thin right-angling crack) flake as it is a ways between bolts and I have often arrived there with a good pump. Super route, do it!!|

|Greetings...I understand the need for a "yellow Alien" or green blue red etc.... I do not happen to have any Aliens. A suggestion would be to say try a 1/2" or 3/4" piece of gear.... Yes I'm a dirtbag and do not make a lot of dough!|

I've removed two hallow aluminum SMC descending rings from the top anchor. The quicklinks are still at the anchor. If you want them back, let me know.
Leaving descent rings at the top of a popular sport climb is dangerous. Stop doing that.
