Mike on Rabies...Pump Handles climbs groove/right ...
Follow an obvious corner system, right of Rabies, up through cracks to horns at the top. Also known as..."them holds be as big as pump handles."
South side of the Holiday Block, right side.
Trad rack; bolted anchors. Because there are no rap rings, top out and move to the east end of the block where you'll find a rap station.
BETA PHOTO: This is Pump Handles, just left of Kennel Club.

This is a nice line for trad leaders just breaking into the grade, as it's a pretty soft 5.9 (there are 5.8s at Sand Rock that I think are much harder!). The start was actually the diciest part for me; after that, it's nice cruising on the "pump handle" holds with lots of good pro.

I am not understanding why this gets confused? The photo here is not "Pump Handles". Pump Handles is right next to Kennel Club "on the left side". I believe this photo is of Walking the Dog? I've climbed Pump handles many times and it is not close to the end of Holiday Block as in the photo.

Great trad climb. Nice crack on top with steering-wheel-sized rail above crux. Fun pod for resting in before crux. No repel rings at anchors, must go over two routes on left to repel down.
