Excellent route. Definitely taller than 70 ft. More like 90, same as Chihuahua Power.

Great route, looks intimidating for a 5.8 but climbs like a dream. 8 bolts to the shared anchor of Chihuahua Power.

Extremely aesthetic & exposed. A treat for the budding leader or seasoned veteran. Nice!

Beautiful place, beautiful area. Great climb. Lots of climbs. Feels like a easy 5.7.

If you're a weekend warrior like me, this climb is a stiff, sandbagged 5.8 (I'd rate it closer to 5.9, maybe even 5.9+). I climbed a multi-pitch 5.8+ at the Fortress the day before and none of the pitches were nearly as hard as Puppy Chow. The crux getting onto the main face on thin, sharp edges with little or no feet is challenging and the climb is fairly sustained. It requires good foot work more than anything. I found it harder than Chihuahua Power.
