Looking to top out into the shrubbery!

Description 

Rock Dog Indirect is a fun and varied line that traverses as much to the left as it does ascend vertically. Anchors near the prickly pear at the end of a short roof. Rare limestone hand jams are useful when working out the roof to get to the jugs to clip the chains.

Rock Dog can be TR'ed from the anchors for this route. "Direct" also has one old bolt in it, about 20 feet up, left over from the first ascent by Tom Suhler and Bruce Becker.

Location 

To the left of Magster begins this traversing route with some interesting terrain and a fun short roof to the anchors. This is the last route on the right end of the wall.

The finish to this was really quite cool. I don't know why more people don't do this route (no one at the wall had done it the day I was there). Getting to the roof is pretty lame climbing, but the roof is a really cool lime stone hand crack running through a roof. I've never seen anything else quite like it. Great jams and good feet make for a really cool finish.

I'd recommend three shoulder-length trad draws for bolts 2-4/5...significantly decreases route drag without compromising safety.
