Directions:  This climb ascends the clean left-facing dihedral on the right side of the Recess. Above the obvious lieback section DRAGON CURVE strikes out right onto the face of the Decepticon Buttress.
Description: 
    Pitch 1: A few feet of dubious rock lead into the dihedral. Continue up this corner past two fixed pins, to a stance (third pin) above the leaning lieback section. Make a wild step up and right onto a narrow sloping ledge, then move further up right, around a corner and onto the Decepticon Buttress. Climb up into parallel finger cracks, above the DECEPTICON finish, and follow these finger cracks to the top. 120', 5.9
