Description

Draconian Binger is an absolute Nine Mile gem. It ascends a slightly overhung arete on perfect sandstone over a good landing.

Sit start with a right-handed sidepull jug and a left hand on a small jib on the arete. From there, work up the arete using an assortment of bumps and slopers to reach the rock's apex (points for not bailing onto the slab early) and top it out.

The trick to this one is utilizing an inconspicuous three-finger crimp at about the 3/4 mark, as this section is thin for holds and anything helps out.

Location

It is on the West face of Tempest Rock.

Protection

A few pads and a spotter, the more pads the better. The landing is good, but it is uneven, and there is a large rock directly behind the problem.
