These are the routes we did on hound dog. I am estimating their ratings, and I'm a wuss leader. <br /> <br />On the left we climbed up a 5.9 crack with huge holds in crack. Then we TR'd the rest. <br /> <br />On the right we climbed up a couple 5.9/10'ish climbs. The climbs on the right are on sandstone and pieces were breaking off so be careful. <br /> <br />Both have TONS OF BOLTS every 6 feet or so. <br /> <br />There is a path leading to cray. Park in the grassy pullout 50 ahead of pullout 6. I'll call it 6.5. In the middle of the pullout cross the street and there is a path up. We marked it with a huge cairn <br />

JASON, All commentary about who does and does not chop routes is now removed. I don't consider saying who chops routes at a crag "shit talking" its just truth. And inexcusable.

The routes are great. Get on them.
