Start in an alcove 20ft. left of Dracula behind a large, spearhead boulder. Work up the face to gain a fist crack in a roof. A fall before here would be very bad with the spine of the boulder directly below you. Note, the second is also in danger of swinging into the boulder as you cannot protect the low section. Work up the crack system over several ledges until a comfy belay ledge directly under a 15ft. roof. Bail out here for a higher quality climb at 5.10b R or continue out the roof on shakey jams and bad feet to chain anchors just past the lip of the roof. 60m. rope required.
Descent: Chain anchors just past the roof
Stays Dry:
