Description

This is a beautiful route on the upper NW Face of the Third Tier of Avalon. This is the Wall of The Dragon and is around to the right from the ?second pitch of Ancient Light?, though it cannot be accessed from Ancient Light.

Follow approach directions given in Wall of the Dragon.

The route begins just up and right from the start of Dragon Slayer. Work straight up via remarakable jugs to clip the first bolt. Continue up and slightly right, et cetera. Stay in line with the bolts and decline any inclination to seek easier terrain out to the right. It isn't easier anyway.

Protection

Five bolts to a 2-bolt ring anchor.

Good climb. We climbed Mystery Tour first, which puts you right at the base of this climb. Definitely worth doing if you are on Mystery Tour (or any of the other climbs in that area). Sep 23, 2012

A good pitch; worth the devious approach. We geared up on a spacious ledge at the top of the ramp then scrambled down to the tree to belay. Be sure to anchor the belayer to the tree; this spot is exposed.

A steep jug haul past the first bolt and some delicate face moves up higher. As Richard says, stay in line with the bolts; the climbing is fun and doable. Sep 15, 2005
...Beautiful rock with immaculate pro in a spectacular setting is a pretty good route. The worst that can be said is that the route is too short. Sep 11, 2005
