Climb 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....[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
