Brian Abram, belaying his wife Dana up the first pitch of Dinkus Dog on the South Side of Looking Glass.  The route's a bit steeper than this photo's perspective makes it seem.  The roof below the start is clearly visible.

The 4th pitch had the worst gear of the route, but was still reasonable. Had a single rack of nuts and doubles of C3 #0 to a #3 C4 Camalot. A #4 could have been used, but is definitely not critical with plenty of options for #2s and #3s if you wanna leave the #4 on the ground. There are a few traverses, so bring slings.

Comments: This line was for sure led prior to 2009. I led it in Spring 2007, placing gear in that flake, and I don't believe there's any way I was the first.
