Dragonflight** E3 5c

Rockfax Description
A super little route which is quite tricky for the short. The climbing is delicate and exposed but never quite as serious as it feels. Climb to the flake and lace it, and the break, with wires. Make a tricky step up to stand on the holds on the flake, commit to some slopers and reach the upper groove. Finish more easily to a single-bolt lower-off. © ROCKFAX

FA. Chris Jackson, Dave Sant, Rod Haslam 1976. Given HVS originally because Chris didn't think he was good enough to lead extreme. The grade stuck for 13 years!

Underestimated this at the end of a day's climbing and made a poor effort on the first attempt. Pulled the ropes and went OK 2nd go.
