|Canidae Cliff (Hammond)
As of now, Canidae Cliff is officially closed for climbing.
Originally 11b until a key hold broke. Now much more technical and demanding, but even better! Start on the right side of the slab (for full value avoid crack in corner) and dance your way towards the hanging niche above. Boldly forge upwards via a shallow 2-finger pocket leading to a hidden "thank-God" bucket and on to another left of the camoflauged anchor. Rappel hangers exist along this route to back off if its not your day.
Bolts with anchors/biners at the top.

Excellent route, although I have not done the harder version now that a key hold has broken. Will withdraw my star rating until I get back there to check out the 'new' route, 4 stars previously.

Thanks for the update on the rating. I always felt weak when I was falling by the last bolt when it was 5.11b Great route! Best for the area!
