Rockfax Description
Start right of Dragon's Route and crimp to the break then climb powerfully up the shallow groove in the centre of the wall, passing good gear in the break with difficulty. The best route on the wall, but beware the final moves. © Rockfax

βeta: According to the Stoney new routes book.... this was led first without the pegs, 2 were then were placed afterwards as it was 'dangerous without'.

βeta: I\'m not sure that the(cemented in) pegs have been seen for a long time so E5 would be more realistic? Dare you say it but this is virtually always climbed as a toprope problem. Oh yes, the description should say Dragon Route not Dragon\'s Back
