A bouldery start to an easier crack system. Walk off right or left to rap anchor. Start variation Dog House (5.9+, ***) follows roof crack up and right to join Smoky Strikes Back after 20'. Known as dog house due to the alcove it starts from between a large boulder and the main wall.


On the right side of the Lower Tier. Start in an alcove with an oak tree. Just right of a roof with a finger crack in it.


Runs the gamut. Aliens are very helpful for the Dog House variation start.
