Is this THE dream line?

It was quick and easy to climb to watch the sunset.

Next to our campground was this massive rock complex, probably not the most spectacular feature in the area but for some reason it attracted our attention from the first sight. Maybe it was the dimension of unbroken and immaculate granite quality or its harmonic and completely smooth shapes. It was quick and easy to climb to watch the sunset. One night we even camped on the flat base and had a hammer of a view for breakfast.

The rock also hosted a rock pool and a number of possible neat rides.

However, to ride top to bottom there were two possibilities only. The obvious one was pretty easy and fun and featured a little drop which looked strange to me. The other possibility was of opposite character, it was down the front face, a real line. While it looked obvious at the initial inspection from far, it actually changed into something of an illusion when we first walked up and needed both hands and all the friction our shoes would yield. For me it was clear right away that this was THE dream line.
