Canine Crag, Holcomb Valley Pinnacles
North of the Stone Wall
is a ridge of rocks that runs parallel to the dirt access road leading to the upper parking area. This wall is found approximately 100 yards north of the Stone Wall and easily accessed by following a trail up to the base of the wall.
East-facing in nature, this wall is best climbed in the afternoon during the summer when the shade provides a more comfortable temperature. Routes to do here include the fun face to arete of Party Poodle
(5.7), the slanting dike system of Powered By Hops
(5.10a) and the balancy, technical face of Igor Unleashed

From the northern parking area walk north along the dirt access road and then head up the hillside when directly below the formation. Once the dirt road is left, a slightly faint trail, that improves the closer one gets, leads directly to the wall. Excpect about a ten minute approach from the upper parking area.
