Description 

Nice face climbing for the first 2 bolts brings you into the slabby section. Make some committing moves for the next 2 bolts and you'll be rewarded with a great jug. After the last bolt there's a ramp of smooth rock with a couple good foot holds. This ramp looks like a ledge when looked at from the ground. Go up the ramp and you're at the anchor.

Location 

On the right side of the crag, just left of Raven

Protection 

5 bolts to quick clips

Worn clip removed from Moe Pup on 20-Sep-2013. While this much wear is often encountered on a popular route over the course of a decade, it is worth reinforcing this point:  <br /> <br />Please do not toprope using the fixed gear. Use your own quickdraws.  <br />

This route is a lot of fun needs some more attention but a good addition to the crag.

The name is wrong. It was named "The Moe Pup Sensation".

It was named after a dog named Mowgli, who happened to also go by the name "The Moe Pup Sensation"

The FA's name is spelled Keith Becconsall.

Thanks.

One of my favorites. Nice climbing down low on ledges that look a litttle bit better than they are, to a balance crux with interesting one and two finger pockets. Topped off with an easy, but thoughtful and fun finish. If this climb is open and I'm walking past it, I always stop to climb it.

Also, though it's a mellow grade and the first bolt is down low, I usually stick clip: that landing is ugly and the start can be tricky!
