Description

Aside from the gritty opium based history, 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 juggy, pocketed rock 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. The final roof redpoint crux and clipping the anchors is a final whipping of the dragon's tail! A hard onsight for the grade.

Location

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