Easily one of the best 5.10's around. Stemming with jugs up a dihedral that just keeps going and going. Pure fun with a cruxy move right at the end. GET ON IT!! (Tie a knot in the end of a 60 meter rope).


Furthest right route at the Hound Dog Crag, up the dihedral.


15 bolts plus anchors.

This is a very striking trad-like route. There's a hard move at the very bottom and another hard move at the top to reach the anchors. In between it's very steep but with big holds and good stems. A 70m rope easily gets you back to the ground. A 60m gets you to easy ground that you can scramble down, but, as noted in the description, be sure to tie a knot in the end of the rope.
