Another good route in the corridor. The route starts with a pseudo crack feature that takes some good gear. Climbing the unprotected face to the left of the crack on positive holds place a piece or two before moving onto the bolts. Follow the right bolt line where you will experience the crux pulling the "belly of the dragon." Follow more bolts and intermittent gear to the summit anchors.


To the right of the Right Unknown Shaffer 5.12. Look for the obvious hand crack and old twin bolts of the Shaffer route, Belly of the Dragon starts on the pseudo crack with positive face holds directly to the right of that.


Bolts, small cams, offsets are nice, nuts, brass
