The final difficult moves of The Dragon.


Get your boulder on! Very steep climbing with a sustained boulder section.

Gain the starting ledge using one of the many means. Start up some big face holds to the first bolt below the overhang. Move left and up into the left facing dihedral and clip the bolt on the overhanging face. Gain some high hands and make the explosive moves to the crimp rail. Continue moving right through the difficult moves to gain the large sloping ledge out right. Heel hook slap and finagle your way into position for the final clip. Make some more difficult moves to better holds using the sloping holds to the anchor.


First route on the main ledge. Just right of Tiny Gun.


QD's for 3 bolts. Two bolt anchor at the top. Rappel with a 60m or smaller.
