Overview
Powerful, technical liebacking, clean golden granite, and huge comfy belay ledges make American Wet Dream one of Tuolumne’s most overlooked 5.10 routes. From the road, Mountaineers Dome looks somewhat monolithic, with no obvious features that would connect in a moderate route. However, American Wet Dream follows a staircase series of thin cracks that traverse diagonally across the entire dome. Some belay ledges are so spacious that many will be comfortable going off belay. The last 5.10 pitch is runout and a fall would result in hitting a slabby ledge.
