Dan TRs Hangdogs.


Hardest move after the roof where the holds get small.


Just to the left of Scar Tissue. Corner to roof.


Anchors just left and below scar tissue anchors. Easy to set up on TR after climbing S.T.

Impressively classic 5.11b/c dihedral to a V7/8 boulder problem that is literally one move. Takes away from the route quite a bit. Not even fun to be honest, not sure if I'll ever try it again. 1 star tops.

I second the stemming corner is great, and probably closer to 11+. The crux roof can be done many ways, with the best being a VERY sneaky beta intensive sequence that amounts to a rather enjoyable 6 move V5 (any other beta puts this into 5.13 territory). Also, supplementary gear is needed above the crux in a couple of places, so bring small/med nuts and a red Metolius/.75 BD to get you to the chains. Also, although it is fun to refer it as such, the crux is nowhere close to holding the the title for "hardest move in the city." Not many routes get afternoon shade at the City, and for that I offer 3 stars.
