Description [Suggest Change]

Ten feet right of Prehistoric Bird, begin from a sds at the base of the northeast arete (this is the right arete of the face that faces down valley) and ascend decent holds up to a topout crux. The slopey armyman-crawl topout will have your full and undivided attention and - if you blow it - you could end up somewhere back in the willows.

Location [Suggest Change]

The Last Drag is located about 8 feet right of Prehistoric Bird on the Second Willow Boulder, or the boulder out in the willows just before you get to Area A proper. An inobvious, less than single-track path winds through the willows for 30-40 feet to reach the base of this boulder.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A couple Organic pads and a spotter to spare you from flying into the willows.
