Description

One of the more metaphoric and common uses of the phrase "chase the dragon" eludes to the pursuit of an ever elusive, ultimate high.

Shares start with Metro Line. Climb a rampy weakness past three bolts, then start moving left to a good shake, at the base of the steep arête. A few big pulls between perfect jugs sets you up for a series of boulder problems that incorporates both sides of the arête and seem to get harder as you climb. A redpoint crux at the roof and clipping the anchors is a final whipping of the dragon's tail! A hard onsight for the grade.

Unfortunately this line has been shedding holds on the left side of the arête at the first crux before the big pocket.

Location

Shares first three bolts of Metro Line, then breaks left to the arête.
