DescriptionClimb from the base of the Dragons Footstool through thin seams, sparse cracks and good chicken heads. All pitches were climbed with a 70m rope.Gear is good when you get it, but can be R-rated at times. All the rock is very positive and strong. Belays are all conveniently located on ledges, although some simul-climbing is require on a few pitches (~25' at most).
This route is a direct start into the route "The Two Towers", and was also climbed in hopes of doing the Complete Dragon Spine Traverse. Rappel off the back and climb directly onto the ridge proper and into "The Two Towers"
