Eric Sanchez climbs Dreams of White Porsches (5.13b) at Mickey's Beach, California. From Rock Climbing the San Francisco Bay Area, by Tresa Black, Dreams has seven bolts to a two-bolt anchor shared with Wet Dreams (5.12c/d). The first ascent (toprope) was in 1987 by Harrison Dekker. It is known as the first 5.13 in the Bay Area. From Jim Thornburg'sBay Area Rock, he says, "heel-cams, toe hooks, unlikely sequences, and perserverance are the keys to linking the widely-spaced features on this unusual climb."
