Directions:  The route is located between Dropline and Welcome to the Machine.
Description: When it comes in this is a great climb that makes a superb alternative to Dracula. Broken up into 2 pitches, it provides a full-length route that goes to the top of the cliff.
    Pitch 1: There are 2 possible starts: (1) Climb a short pitch just right of the small buttress that's just right of the start to Machine. (2) Climb a thin runnel just left of Dracula and right off the trail that goes between the Dracula and Machine. Belay at a pine tree behind a large rock on the ledge.

    Pitch 2: Climb one of the large flows to the to of the cliff.

Gear: standard ice rack
Descent: Walk off over top of Dracula and around by the Hanging Garden.
History:  February 11,1983 - Todd Swain, Butch Constantine
