Starting about 15" right of Lakeside Jam there are some crimps that lead directly up to a hanging dagger-like flake. Once established on the flake, a bucket or two leads you to the lip for a fairly simple mantle. Beta and flexibility make the crux (right off the ground) much easier.


About 15" right of Lakeside jam, this is the face immediately right of the left facing flake for "China Dragon Right).


I suppose you could lead this, but the crux is right at the ground. If you make it through the crux, you won't fall up higher. Really this would be a better moderate-highball V3/4. As it is a toprope is standard
