Following the first pitch of Green Dragon in April...

Description 

This is a killer route but seriously a deadly pendulum fall happened. Maybe the risk has been eliminated by retro bolting? Lower crux very polished face and friction and upper half has seems impossible set of off balanced mantle cruxes to the belay bolts. I did this in 1986. Then 1/4" bolts and got it on sight. Rock slide happened destroyed bolts and its been retro bolted.

Location 

Cliff base directly below Mr. Natural.

Protection 

mostly bolted and light rack. 50 just makes it and 60 rope better. It was originally done in 2 pitches.

The 1999-06-13 rockfall down Punch Bowl, which killed Peter Terbush - probably erased some bolts on Punch Bowl climbs, but did not damage any bolts on Green Dragon.
The original 1/4" bolts on Green Dragon were replaced with 3/8" stainless in 2009 by Roger Brown. No bolts were added.
