Sport route in the middle of the south side of the Holiday Block. Thin climbing up high leads to a committing move out a roof. This route has been mislabeled in both editions of the Dixie Craggers Atlas as Oyster.
Located between Walking the Dog and Pump Handles.

Little worthless trivia for ya about this route. This climb was named after getting my finger bitten by a bat while doing one of the FAs. Fortunately the tip of my finger was too calloused for it to penetrate.

This looks like the description for Underdog in the first Dixie Cragger's Atlas. Can anyone confirm this?

Yes, this route is referred to as "Underdog" in the Dixie Cragger. My perception from speaking to the locals that it should be Rabies. I just did this in April 2011 and can confirm pretty much all the bolts (except the crux) are rusty - to me the route goes 5.9ish until the crux which I think is rated appropriately for the area (and has a new bolt!).
