Vision Quest. Climber is on the route Rainbow Oys...

Description 

This is a face or cliff/crag at the Dreamscape Area of Shuteye Ridge. It is located just above and west of Queen's Throne. It is a very featured face covered in chickenheads and knobs.

From left to right, the route Sunset Shaman is first. There is a another bolted line next to Rainbow Oyster. A new bolted line to the right of Cosmic Rodeo is 5.8 and shares the same anchors - it is called Sleepwalker and it sports 1 (one) bolt.

This section gets pretty congested.

Getting There 

Same directions as to High Eagle/Shangri La. From the 2WD parking area, you can see a giant dome with water streaks/runnels all over it;..this is Queen's Throne. Dreamscape is the cliff you can see just above and behind it. Vision quest is a wall left of the center of the Dreamscape area.

Follow a steep lie back seam straight up with smeary feet. Pull out onto the golden face for some technical edging and punch it up and out of the roof to the chains. There's always a bolt right when you need it....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
