|The Lower Tier
Canine Corner is a new variation to Beer Dog. It starts on Beer Dog, then breaks right a climbs a right-facing corner and slab.
Start as for Beer Dog, at the top of the approach trail to the Lower Tier, at the bottom of the rappel gully.
Scramble up broken rock to the buttress just left of the gully. Climb Beer Dog past the first three bolts, with some difficult (10b) moves past the second bolt. After clipping the third bolt, break right onto a slab at the fourth bolt.
At the fifth bolt, you can move right and up the edge of the slab (5.8), or continue straight up the right-facing corner (5.10). Near the top, layback (5.8-5.9) up the corner to the anchor.
Same as Beer Dog. On the Lower Tier of the Bihedral, at the top of the approach trail, on the buttress left of the rappel gully.
7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Shares the first three bolts with Beer Dog, and the first five with Hound's Tooth.

Ok, I'll be the first to comment.
Yes, the crux of all three of these is down low after bolt 2 or so, but I did enjoy the weird moves to go right. The rock pushes you left up Beer Dog.
The left hand jam and lieback finish up the final 3 bolts was fun. I think this climb is worth doing.
