|Dragon Song||E3 6a|
|30m. Excellent. Strenuous and sustained, but well protected ~ for those with the strength|
to place it. Care should be taken to avoid rope drag. The original joins The Dangler. The variation finish is more satisfying, for the competent; but pushes the route to the upper end of its grade. Start below a small roof.
1) 6a. Move round the corner, and up a small groove; hard moves gain a traverse
line. Go right, (Peg) and make a very hard move up, to gain holds above (climbers have been heard to mutter “Oh, for crux sake”, or similar, at this point).
Move right, to another overhang. A hard move gains the vee groove on the right.
Climb up the groove, past yet another roof, to gain a ramp. Finish up the slab.
Ledge and tree belay. Walk off right.
