Abseil from the top of Drag Queen. Dont try and de...

Description 

Climb up and right from the belay through the weakness in the roof. Follow the bolts that then swing back left on an exposed slab traverse before finishing up the headwall. No real crux section, but quite sustained. Take some long quickdraws or you will find out the hard way why this route is called "Drag Queen". Dont try and descend from the top to the river in one abseil unless you have a 70m rope.

Location 

Ascend the fixed line to the bolted belay of Aronofsky. From here traverse right at about grade 17 following the bolts to the higher ledge that has the bolted belay for this route.

Protection 

10 bolts + bolted belay
