Start in a small alcove above a short 4th class section. Step onto face and go left to arete and first bolt, then up. Crux is gaining the bulge at the third bolt. Easy edging up left side of blunt arete to underclings under the bulge. Poor feet on small crimps, Look for a hidden smear under the edge of the bluge for your feet to get you through the crux. Very fun and airy.
Route is the north west edge of the formation of Dragon Scales Rocks. High point of the crag with a prominent, left-arching roof that intersects the arete. Easily seen from Forest Service Road 100. Gain the start of the route by 4th classing up a short section to the base.
4 bolts with supplemental cams 1/2" to 1 1/2". Walk of or rap off of two bolts.
