The rail of Dracula. Classic moves

Description 

Dracula is one of the best and most popular 5.12 routes in Portland. The route is consistent, but the ending (into the infamous Pod)could get you any time. Good, unique, and classic moves fill the route. A truly addicting classic.

Location 

Bat Wall, the first route you get to.

Protection 

Sport.

Knee bar? Layback? The pod is about as unique a feature as I've seen.

Dracula has been rebolted as of 2/9/15 with SS 1/2" bolts, thanks to ASCA for hardware. Steel anchor biners have been added.

Wow, what a fantastic line! Requires so much more precise beta and so much less burl than anything else I've climbed at the grade. Amazing!
