This is a short but super high quality roof crack. The crux is twenty feet of super overhanging ring locks. If it where longer is would be a super classic but even still it's very enjoyable.


On the right side of the Wawona tunnel (coming out). Just follow the cliff downhill for about 200 feet.

FA was Ray Jardine, and I think the complete name is A Dogs Roof. Fa was done in 5/77 according to the yellow Meyers guide.

I read somewhere that Jardine actually called the route "Dog's Woof". Just a little trivia lesson
