This route was originally a solo route and is listed as so in nearly all of the guidebooks but it was bolted at some point, possibly during the CCC rebolting effort.

You will need to start on another route, such as Dream Waves or Peer Pressure. Dream waves tends to work best. At the start of the second pitch of Dream Waves, climb the dike, just past the bolt on Dixie Crystals, to a point where you are under a bolt that is just under a nice bulge. Climb up to the bolt at the bulge (crux) and find several nice crystals above the bulge to help pull up over it. From here, climb up and left to a bolted belay. The route now follows a water groove past two bolts, all the way up to a ledge at the base of a large overhang and will require either a gear belay, the use of a tree, or moving onto another route. The topo in Selected Climbs shows a set of rings here but none will be found.


Left of Dixie Crystals, just above the Dream Waves dike.


3 dedicated bolts and one set of rings. Other gear will depend on which route you use to get here. No anchors at the top.
