The Terrace is a small rock across the the river from Dream Dome. It is up the hill 75 yards or so, and it has 2 bolted sport routes: Arete (8) and Dream Scene (11b). Dream Scene is East-facing, so it gets a lot of sun in the morning until about mid-afternoon. Arete is South-facing, but it is behind some trees, so only the upper half of the route will be in the sun. There is a bolted anchor to rap from.


A. Arete, 8, 1p, 60', bolts.
B. Dream Scene, 11, 1p, 70', bolts.


A. Unknown, 10, 1p, <50', bolts +/- gear.
B. Unknown face, 12, 1p, <50', bolts.
C. Unknown, 11, 1p, <50', bolts.

Getting There 

You can see the The Terrace from the base of Dream Dome. Cross the river at the base of Dream Dome. Hike up the hill until you reach the rock. There is a small climbers trail at the East end of the Rock (the one you come to when you hike up the hill). Follow the trail around to left (South) until you come upon and steep face with bolts on it.

Instead of wading the river, there is a plank across the river starting at the baseof Lost Angel. The plank is pretty thick, but starting to show signs of age. Fromthe far side of the plank, head up hill and upstream to reach the Terrace.

The photo potential from the top of this route is better than the route itself. Interesting slabbing however, and good for people new to climbing to follow.

There are three new routes on the Terrace on a face just downhill from the Arete.

From L to R:

10-/10ish right-facing corner. 2 bolts, then option for midsized nut before runut to anchors. Runout is easy though. Hard to lower without getting rope into cracks.

5.12ish on L side of face below corner. 5 bolts to same anchor.
We started up the route to the right for a couple of moves then moved back left around first bolt. Reasonably clean. Nice movement, esp. up to bolt 3.

5.11ish on R side of face. 4 bolts to same anchor. Harder-than-it-looks start in a small L facing corner. Also reasonably clean.

None of these routes are much longer than 50 feet and only about 25 of that is difficult.

Currently, downstream from the Oceanic Wall, there's a pretty good downed tree for stream crossing.
