The fate of the charge-neutral Dirac point in graphene in a high magnetic field H has been investigated at low temperatures (T∼0.3K). In samples with small gate-voltage offset V0, the resistance R0 at the Dirac point diverges steeply with H, signaling a crossover to a state with a very large R0. The approach to this state is highly unusual. Despite the steep divergence in R0, the profile of R0 vs T in fixed H saturates to a T-independent value below 2 K, consistent with gapless charge-carrying excitations.
