Cory Smith on Unleash the Dragon


This climb is a few feet right of There Goes the Neighborhood and climbs past horizontals, then along a crack, passing four bolts to a two-bolt anchor.


4 bolts, anchors

Another fun, short route for the beginners. The 5.8 rating on this one is also really generous; it's even easier than the route to the left, There Goes the Neighborhood. I'd give it a 5.7- if MP had that as an option.

I'd agree it is a one move wonder. The first move off the deck is the closest to 5.8. The rest of the route has bomber holds the whole way.

Easiest 5.8 ive ever been on. 5.6 is a much more accurate rating.

This route is actually "Ivy Alice" 5.6. It shares an anchor with "Unleash the Dragon" 5.7. Both F.A. Joan Bertini, Dave Kennedy
