this route is the dopest dope ive ever smoked ha ha didnt know it was a 10d till we got done with it but we saw someone doing it and thought it looked like fun so we went for it, the overhang is a be-otch and its hard to clip the bolt just past it but its a wicked fun climb def. good for a work out got spent by the time we reached the top

4 out of 5 stars Nice roof

Very fun roof, fun to figure out. The guide is confusing on this route, so a lot of people think this is bolted. The bolted route is Red Red Whine, 5.8. Impossible Dream is the thin crack well to the left of the bolted route.

Fantastic little climb. It's super easy to the roof and super easy after the roof. A gray camalot can go in to the left and under the roof, a #4 stopper protects the roof perfectly, and after that take up a blue or purple TCU (blue is the better placement but that's also where my fingers were...). A small purple camalot protects the climbing after that if you need it.

Bouldery crux. After watching my friend Tristan red-point it, I am motivated to jump back on it. Will take a grey camalot under the roof, a #4/5 stopper in the roof, and a few metolius TCUs after the roof.
