Description 

This is probably the best of the Dogwood Right climbs. It climbs the left route up the small roof and continues straight up the wall. The crux, one would think is at the roof --Not So. Up higher you will find thin smears and no fingers. This climb gave me problems my first time up.


Protection 

2 bolt anchor and 6 draws for the route.

Even though it is now September the belay for this route is just barely out of the water. You basically stand on a couple rocks and try and keep your rope dry. A couple months ago the start of this route was under a couple feet of water.

The roof is easy as there are big holds abounding. The upper section is well protected and despite the polished look of the climb there are nice crimpers everywhere.

Three bolt anchor at the top that is shared with Haven't A Clue.

The roof is a couple challenging moves, but the crux was about mid-route for us

Fun climb, easy access, just had to belay from the top as water was down below!
