Description:

On the head wall of the Main Wall just above Yankee Dog and to the left of Corrugation Corner. A vertical to overhanging orange wall littered with dikes that resembles that of a dragons back. Steep dike moves and some powerfull liebacks over sportily spaced bolts. Nothing near run out, just enough to keep your focus.

Descent Options:

Lower from anchor with a 70m rope, possibly but just barely with a 60m.

3 out of 5 stars Sporty

Was an Ok route, pretty easy with no real defined crux. Worth doing if you're up there. Actually, worth doing even if you're not. Really exposed and feels like you're way up there. Good way to spend an afternoon.
