Mike Ringsred and Nate Erickson on Dead Dog Face. ...

Description 

A somewhat unusual climb for Red Wing. Pockety, technical and on smooth solid rock. Fine route at its grade. Reminiscent of sport climbing in white limestone.

Follow the bolt line and stay off the roof holds on the right.

Please email me if you have any info regarding bolting and first free ascent of this route.

Protection 

4 bolts, rap anchors.

This route climbs much better than it looks. Though a little contrived, sticking to the face at the start and going left after the big hole at the second bolt makes this route more like 11c and superb.

Contrived but if you follow Adam's advice it's stellar, a lot of fun and tough to onsight.

Technically, the 5.11a rating (a bit contrived) calls for climbing between (and not using) the two cracks.
