This route has never made it into either the big guide book, or Joshua West. There is a pillar or fin of rock between Zsa Zsa and Bitch Bitch; On the Dragon's Back goes up this pillar.


Left side of AFPA Rock.


Maybe a piece down low, but mostly bolted. QDs for the bolts. No fixed anchor.

The name of this route is "Dance on a Dragon's Back". Originally done with 3 bolts to a bolted anchor.

The bolts were replaced years ago, but the anchor is not there anymore. The climb is fun, and worth doing.
