Description:

Climbs an obvious stepped corner to the left of a big tree. Gear is required or you can run it out to the first bolt. Pretty good route - both pitches are about 10a/b.

4 out of 5 stars Very nice climb

I like this climb a bit better than it more popular neighbour (Primal Dream). The first time I climbed it, my belayer had a 3 foot rattlesnake slither a complete circle around his belay position. I was just at the first bolt so hung out an enjoyed the show. He, being from Vancouver, had never seen a rattlesnake before. Funny.
