The Fantasy Area is home to some of the most classic lines at Endless Wall including must do routes like Aesthetica, Erotica, Black & Tan, Black Happy, The Stick, And the beutiful splitter crack Fantasy. It starts getting shade around 1 to 2 pm. The rock here is of the finest quality at the Gorge, with many beutiful orange and black streaks reminiscent of same kind in Austrailia's Mount Arapiles. Enjoy!
You can hike up river from the Honey Mooners' Ladder or just rap in from a station off the trail above Endless. This station is below an obvious overlook of the river. It is not marked by a sign, and requires a full 60 meter rope. Be careful and make sure your ropes reach the ground.

This route is outstanding! If you do 5.11c, do this route! Start by climbing straight up on vertical rock to reach a bulge. From here, diagonal up and right following very chalked holds aiming for a 1 ft wide ledge about 20 ft up from the bulge. This section is the crux. From this ledge continue up and right for a few moves and then it begins to diagonal up and left toward the shuts.
