BETA PHOTO: Chink on the right.
Start in a small alcove in the center of the face, same start as for dragon slayer, but go up and right to the left-arching crack/roof. Gain the crack and climb up and left underclinging with good feet and continue to arete. Finish with the 10d bulge on Dragon Slayer. Fun, easy crack with a hard finish.
Upper north west end of Dragon Scales Rocks. High point of immediate crag easily seen from Forest Service Road 100. Clean face with prominent, left-slanting roof/crack.
Nuts and cams 1/2" to 1 1/2". One of my HBs is in the crack now. 2 bolts at crux and finish. Two bolt anchor or walk off.
