Black Dog, 9+.


Climb the crimpy face (crux) up to a small, left-facing dihedral to the anchors. Or climb on the face for higher difficulty instead of waltzing up the dihedral.


This is the 4th line of bolts to the left of Mighty Dog (overhanging route with fixed chains).


10 bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings. It shares an anchor with Dog Breath.

LOOSE BLOCK: There is a loose block on this route just below the anchors (which are shared with Dog's Breath). The last group of holds just below the anchors as you approach from Dog's Breath has a loose block on the right side of the group. It is pretty big - but we did not remove it since there were lots of climbers in the belay area.

This has the worst rap rings condition I've seen. Each ring is worn half way through, in two places. Obviously top roped to death. I know nothing about replacing them but would chip in to help replace them.

Great route and would enjoy doing it again, but personally I wouldn't rap on those rings, let alone TR or lower.
