The face starts out steep with big pockets and edges, then gradually moves to vertical with ever shrinking holds. The final moves are the crux and like all the sandstone topouts in the area, the holds may have gotten smaller over the years. You wouldn't want to climb this one after it rains because those holds would be particularly vulnerable.

This is a fun climb, definitely worth doing. Not as steep as Dogma, and requires the ability to stand up.


Just right of the Doghouse Arete


7 bolts, chains

If there weren't chalk on the slopey, sandy nothingness holds past the last bolt I would have no idea what I was supposed to hold onto up there. Excellent thin climbing to that point though.

Not sure if I was off-route or not, but I ended up slightly left after the last bolt. Just couldn't find any real holds staying directly on the bolt line...

I decided to try and climb straight up instead of bailing left at the last bolt - undercling high feet to good edges with ticks...not the crux but definitely keeps you honest.
