DescriptionThree different crux sections keep this climb interesting. Save some energy for the finish! The first crux is just passing the small roof at the first bolt. The next crux comes at midheight and involves thin, but positive crimps. The final crux is just past the last bolt and is a difficult sequence of moves on sloping pockets. The finishing moves make this climb a challenging onsite for the grade.
LocationThird route from the left. A little difficult to locate since there are two other routes immediately right of it.
Protection8 bolts. Anchor on top.

The "three cruxes" thing might be a little extreme. The first two aren't nearly as hard as the sustained, shallow pockets on the crux headwall, in my opinion.

Bulldogging just received new bolts and hangers. 3 bolts were added, eliminating runout sections making the route about climbing not a hair raising adventure just getting from bolt to bolt. The previous bolting job (which I did) had bolts wandering from left to right chewing up vertical space and forcing the line. The bolts are aligned with the anchors allowing the leader to utilize the natural features of the route more realistically and avoiding crowding the route next door (8 second ride) which is next for an upgrade. Short section of well protected 5.11 and really fun climbing, enjoy!
