Access Issue: Occupied Campsite Rule In Effect! Details
Any route or boulder problem that starts out of or near an occupied campsite may not be done without first obtaining the campsite occupant's permission.
Thin crimping right off the ground gains a crack where the difficulty eases and good protection can be found; higher, the top the crack peters out and a bolt [replaced 4/00 - ed.] is found to protect increasingly easier slab moves to the top.
- The name is a play on Bela Lugosi - the star of the classic 1931 horror movie "Dracula".
This climb lies 15' left of That Old Soft Shoe and is identified as a left-leaning thin crack starting about 15' off the ground.
