Great beginner's sport route on lower south rib of Vanishing Point. Starts off 5.6, continually get harder to the top, following an arete. Approach is same as for Midnight Rock, but go all the way to the creek, and hike downstream until you get to the arete.
8 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Fun delicate face climbing on an airy arete; one of the best moderate climbs in Upper Dream Canyon.

This is a great beginner lead, at the grade of course. It's well protected, and slightly airy near the edge of an arete. It wasn't spectacular, nor did it have any particularly noteworthy moves on it, but it was still fun. The hands can be a little thin, but there's wicked good feet the whole way.
One note on finding the thing: Rossiter describes this as being on a rib that comes out of the water. This climb is probably about 50 yards up the hill from the water.
I don't remember there being one or moves that stuck out as 5.8.

Cool route, great airy feeling. The first bolt is high, but the scrabling is easy to reach it. A great moderate tour of dream canyon can be had by starting at center tap corner, then the terrace, then this route, follwed by a trot uphill to weather report.

The approach can be a little confusing the first time. The route itself is fun, with quality rock, but felt easier than 5.8.

This might be the best 5.8 I've done!
