Pitch 1: Climb up to small overhang and move around left (awkward) or climb slab on left up to here (less protected). Continue up into a small left facing corner. When the corner becomes right facing move right to a crack (crux) and cruise up into an awesome open book with small ledge.
Pitch 2: Climb the cracks in the right wall. Step right then back left and up to move overhangs. Then traverse way right and follow dirty corner to the top. This pitch is only 5.5 but very exciting. There is a lot of traversing, so try to avoid placing too much gear and use long slings.
Starts about 20 feet right of Fat City and 40 feet right of Gelsa. No anchors, but you can rap from the tree above Alphonse or take the short walk off to the right.
SR and long slings.
1st pitch crux...

I thought the first pitch was PG. If you don't feel like the second pitch, you can also TR the first pitch of The Hounds by building an anchor by the rap station the top of the first pitch (or possibly half way up the second pitch depending on how you break it up).

I only did Pitch 1 and linked to P3 of Yellow Ridge. I'd like to get back on this climb and find the 5.7 moves of the crux - it was damn hard I thought! Gear, like a friend put eloquently, is "creative".
