Mark Collar on Ruthless Poodles


Straight line up the left face of Foothill Crag. Ruthless Poodles goes directly over the round hole halfway up the wall, just to the left of the crack that splits the face. The first clip is high, but the climbing to it isn't very scary. The crux is well-protected with bolts. This is one of the few routes at Foothill Crag that most people will be comfortable leading without gear.

The climbing is slabby on small edges, almost vertical at the crux with some larger edges and pockets.


7 bolts to anchors. The anchors are accessible from the top.

Reese Martin replaced all lead and anchor bolts on Ruthless Poodles - 9/99.
