|Canidae Cliff (Hammond)
As of now, Canidae Cliff is officially closed for climbing.
Start as for Latrans but veer right after second bolt and large sidepull to a rising traverse (potentially some dirty or loose stuff) to a stance below the ominuously overhanging and thin face above. Excellent, technical and sequency moves lead to twin underclings and a sustained finish (hint: gun for a softball sized hold over and down from the chained anchor, but don't stop there....forge boldly to lip and a hidden clipping hold on slab beyond the lip for full value and an easier clip.
Camoflauged chains drop over the lip---don't clip around the chain, but through the links themselves if no fixed biners are present! Otherwise, leave the biners there, please. Rapell hangers exsit along this route to back off the route (do not get lowered through them please.
Bolts. Chains with biners at the top.

Great route! Decent rest half way but there is no way to not be pumped for the crux final moves.
