Continuing to the right of the arete with On the Edge is a nice looking climb up the face. The bolts were original set by a Gallup local who was unable to complete the route, so Scott had to finish it off for him! Hence, the name, Stolen Dreams. Though the route setter puts this route at .11a, the crux move, a large lunge, I believe goes at .11b or c.
Five bolts to bolt anchors.

Yes, this climb is a good one. It is funny to reflect on the past, Jim had put in the toprop anchors and worked the route a little and realized it might be out of reach for the time being. I then stole it and made it my own. He was working on some other routes at the time so he didn't mind.
The climb has a couple of really good spots in it, a long wingspan reach and a long lunge move right after, not bad if you set up for it. I don't think I had my gut when I climbed that one.
