20m. A quality eliminate that tackles the bulging rock between 'Smaug The Dragon' and 'The Goblin King' which surprisingly offers almost entirely independent climbing. A good small wire protects a hard crux sequence at the start of the steepness before battling up to better holds and good gear. Continue up the still steep rock on great holds right of the groove of Smaug, and finish directly up to the tree belay on loose looking, but solid rock (as for Bullroarer). An old top rope rope problem that has had no recorded lead.
