Description 

Delicate interesting footwork the whole way.

Start at the bottom of the arete. Directly up staying "tight" to the arete, to a ledge. Next directly up staying "tight" to the arete, to reach gentler section. Cross some dirt (grabbing the tree is OK) to another rock section. Finish up the arete to two mature trees.

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near underneath the climber.

. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).

Location 

At the bottom of the right (east) edge of the Dragon wall slab.
